Committed to environmentally safe practice, GRT’s soil stabilization and dust control products and services are used widely throughout the global renewable energy sector.
Requiring minimal maintenance, the all weather roads and site pads help to reduce the environmental impact of renewable energy operations.
Access Roads and Site Pads
Reliable access to and from renewable energy farms is critical. And as more and more communities turn to renewable energy sources, these roads become an increasingly integral part of the process.
Again, two of the biggest problems associated with these kinds of remote access roads and sites are access to quality construction materials during construction and road surface maintenance. These issues lead to costly repairs and the problem of dust generation from unsealed surfaces. In turn, these lead to reduced visibility, health and safety concerns, plus the reduced effectiveness and efficiency of renewable energy infrastructure during operation. Accumulated dust on the surface of solar panels can reduce a system’s efficiency by up to 50 per cent!
GRT’s innovative range of polymer stabilisation and sealing products keeps productivity up by keeping dust down.
GRT soil stabilization and dust control polymer technologies can be used to stabilise and improve in-situ materials for use in road and site pad construction. Polymer sealing and dust suppression can be used to manage the surface of roads and exposed areas by creating a protective sealant layer that maintains surface integrity and practically eliminates dust generation.
As a “solutions based” company, GRT works with global alternative energy organizations all over the globe, and is known for its ability to solve difficult soil stabilization and dust control challenges. Using in-situ materials to create our roads saves on time, money and logistics issues. We recognise that often our roads can be the difference between a town having energy or not! That’s why our polymer products have accumulating capabilities, reducing the need and frequency for maintenance as residual product increases over time.
Independently verified as environmentally friendly by Environmental Resource Management (ERM), GRT’s dust control and road stabilization polymer solutions fit both form and function for the burgeoning renewable energy sector.
Polymer Modified Cement
Polymer modified cement created by Global Road Technology is a combination of cementitious binder, GRT polymer, water and granular material. These components are mixed together and compacted in the early stages of the hydration process to form a pavement layer that is subsequently cured.
Effective soil binder & erosion control
GRT-ENVIRO SOIL BINDER & EROSION CONTROL is an organic soil conditioner based on a water-soluble polymer. This product can be added to irrigation water to reduce soil erosion by agglomerating fine particles that otherwise would be carried away by surface water runoff.
Counter Terrorism Landmine Clearance Technology
An expeditionary product with unique morphology, GRT1000 aids in the detection of sub-surface threats, such as landmines. Invisible to the naked eye, this patented state-of-the-art solution warns armed forces when roads and tracks have been disturbed.
Aerial Deployed Dust Control
An aerial deployed, military grade dust control solution, GRT2000 establishes dust free temporary landing zones in the operational theatre within minutes. Not relying on ground based combat engineers, it can be delivered almost anywhere, mitigating brownouts and improving safety.
Self Healing Runways
A novel biomimetic formulation, GRT3000 is designed to facilitate rapid construction of tactical and emergency self-healing runways in the operational theatre. Providing substantial increases in compression as well as tensile strength, GRT3000 runways are ultrathin and failure resilience.
(Black) Dust Control Polymer Sealant
Engineered to combat the problems of fugitive dust and soil stabilization on unpaved roads, GRT8000 compounds with each application to bind dust particles together. Preventing dust from becoming airborne, overtime applications can be reduced and eventually stopped.
(Black) Polymer Soil Stabilization
GRT’s most advanced polymer soil stabilization product, GRT9000 is engineered for use in the construction of high-quality and cost-effective pavements. Mitigating surface degradation, GRT9000 bonds soil or pavement particles together, improving compressive strengths, high tensile resilience and water impermeability.
