Environmental Benefits

Along with safety, environmental sustainability is the core principle that GRT’s products, services and strategic direction have been built around. Independently tested, verified and certified to strict standards* GRT’s innovative range of soil stabilisation, sealing, erosion and dust control, and water management products have been developed by industry leading engineers and scientists.

All GRT products have been developed and chosen on the basis that they are inherently safe.

This means they don’t contain heavy metals, are non-toxic, non-corrosive, and non-bio accumulative. This principle ensures that our products and processes do not harm the natural environment, workers and surrounding communities. Further to this, our products are designed to reduce environmental harm and in some case reverse it.

In-situ stabilisation of existing roads means little or no quarried rock is used during the construction of GRT roads.

GRT roads utilise in-situ materials, meaning less extractive techniques are required to generate the materials needed compared to conventional road construction.

Both companies and the environment receive the benefit by optimizing and/or reducing the total vehicle movements required constructing new roads or managing in a dust free state.

Are environmental regulations, health and safety concerns or potential profit loss a concern right now?

As GRT roads are dust-suppressed, there are long-term environmental benefits for communities adjacent to mines, quarries and construction projects. By reducing quarrying and material transport, operational greenhouse emissions are significantly curtailed.

Our range of wind and water erosion control products are design to keep soil, ore and road materials where you want them – where you put them!

Working hand in hand with these technologies, our water clarification range ensures that any water leaving your site is clean and safe.

With fewer truck passes and less need for concrete, coal, crushed rock, bitumen or asphalt, greenhouse gas emissions are greatly reduced.

Also, in-situ stabilised roads delivered by GRT can be constructed up to 75% faster than conventional methods, resulting in fewer emissions over the length of the project.

GRT’s dust controlling technologies are designed to reduce or even eliminate the need for water to be sprayed for dust suppression.

Additionally, some of the technologies are designed to be compatible with salt water, meaning that irrigation or drinking water supplies need not be used at all.

GRT’s water management technologies target leaking dams and suspended contaminants to both save water losses from leaking dams, as well as cleaning water prior to environmental release.

GRT technologies are designed to be long lasting solutions for mining, renewables and resources, rural, government, civil, and rehabilitation sectors.

Technologies are developed to be environmentally stable so as to not solve one problem by introducing another.

GRT’s products and systems are independently certified according to the International Standards Organisation as complying with its high standard of quality management and assurance.

“We provide the solution to the global need for better and safer roads, operations, and infrastructure for people, industry and communities everywhere.”
