Soil Erosion Control Solutions
When it comes to soil erosion control and protecting exposed land against the ravages of wind and water, GRT’s advanced polymer technology delivers the complete soil erosion control solution. Many of the current soil erosion control plan options rely on capturing sediment in silt fences, check dams, and sedimentation ponds. These structures need continual maintenance and don’t treat the source of the problem.
GRT Enviro Binder and Wet-Loc keeps the soil in place – where you want it! Offering fast results and proven to outperform in any situation, our non-toxic, environmentally friendly formula has been extensively tested and trialed in multiple environments.
GRT’s innovative sprayed on polymer erosion control solution works quickly to immediately penetrate the top layer of the soil and form a durable layer, that is bound to underlying material. Unlike other soil erosion control methods, GRT’s product supports seed and vegetation growth, while maintaining its effective erosion and dust suppression properties over the long term.
GRT is among the most cost-effective soil erosion control methods, with exceptional results achieved using only small quantities sprayed directly onto the surface.
Most of the soils have some sodic properties. Sodic soil is the term given to soil that holds sodium – a cation (a positive ion) – that is held loosely on clay particles in the soil.
High sodicity in soil causes clay to swell when it’s wet, and the clay particles move so far apart that they disperse. This, in turn, weakens the aggregate in the soil, causing collapses, and closing off soil pores. When this happens, water and air movement in sodic soils is severely limited and causes structural issues.
Sodic soils are particularly vulnerable to most forms of soil erosion and can affect the infrastructure of roads. Soil stabilisation is a vital component of successful road construction, and considering bitumen and concrete produce a lot of runoff, necessary steps need to be taken with stabilising the soil in road construction.
In mining and exploration activities, the natural drainage of the land is interfered with as roads are built and digs undertaken. Disturbing the soil can cause environmental issues like erosion and silting of waterways. Mining exploration requires the development of hundreds of kilometres of roads and tracks, and because of this, soil stability and erosion prevention is a vital component of ensuring environmentally safe mining works.
GRT stabilization products transform end of life, out of spec roads and pavements into safe, durable infrastructure, in a cost-effective manner.
All roads and pavements age and are compromised over time or by increased traffic volumes, resulting in a range of symptoms including dust, potholes, rutting, corrugation or total pavement failure. This can also result in vehicle accidents, can cut off communities, and impact on the flow of goods people.
With GRT’s polymer soil stabilization technologies, you can alleviate these very real social, environmental, and economic concerns.
