Committed to environmentally sustainable practice, GRT’s soil stabilisation and dust control products, processes and services are both ideologically and practically suited to the global renewable energy sector.
The Challenge of Access
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.
The biggest challenges associated with these kinds of remote facilities are access to quality construction materials and cost effective maintenance strategies. Typically, 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 stabilisation, sealing and dust control products keeps productivity up by keeping dust down.
GRT soil stabilisation and dust control 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 layer that maintains surface integrity and practically eliminates dust generation.
Long-term dust and erosion control options provide sustainable and easily applied environmentally sound management tools for roads, drains, cuttings, embankments and hardstands used for wind and solar farms, hydro-schemes, and geothermal plants.
As a “solutions based” company, GRT works with global alternative energy organisations all over the globe, and is known for its ability to solve difficult soil stabilisation and dust control challenges.
Using, improving and conserving in-situ materials in the creation of our roads and facilities solve time, money, environmental and logistical issues.
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.
