  • Dust Control Products in Soil Stabilization Industry by SSI

    From construction sites to skateboarding arenas, from unpaved roads to army bases in deserts, there are many kinds of environments that need effective dust control solutions. If the dust in such environments is not controlled, it can lead to low visibility, reduced efficiency and many health issues. This is right where Soil Stabilization Innovations ...

  • In Situ Solidification/Stabilization

    Introduction Solidification/stabilization (S/S) reduces the mobility of hazardous substances and contaminants in the environment through both physical and chemical means. Unlike other remedial technologies, S/S seeks to trap or immobilize contaminants within their 'host' medium (i.e., the soil, sand, and/or building materials that contain them), instead of removing them through chemical or ...

  • Solidification/Stabilization

    Introduction: As for in situ solidification/stabilization (S/S), ex situ S/S contaminants are physically bound or enclosed within a stabilized mass (solidification), or chemical reactions are induced between the stabilizing agent and contaminants to reduce their mobility (stabilization). Ex situ S/S, however, typically requires disposal of the resultant materials. Under CERCLA material can be ...

  • Using Geosynthetics in Slope Stability

    The majority of slope failures within the geosynthetics industry can often be avoided with proper engineering and material selection. However, the factors that affect slope stability can be difficult to discern and measure. Soil thickness, seepage forces, seismic forces, gas uplift, geomembrane texturing, engineering and provision of reinforcing elements are only a few of the factors affecting ...

  • Use of Lime Stabilized Biosolids for Turf Grass Production in the New Jersey Pinelands

    A 700 acre farm producing turf grass sod for residential and commercial uses has been utilizing liquid, lime stabilized biosolids as its primary source of plant macronutrients on approximately 380 acres since late 1995. The farm is located within the New Jersey Pinelands, a sensitive and unique ecosystem characterized by pine-oak forests, sandy soils and high quality ground and surface waters. ...

  • Cypher Environmental Ltd. Environmentally Friendly Soil Stabilizer Introduced to the Dominican Republic

    Building effective and long lasting roads in the Dominican Republic has proven to be difficult in the past due to high annual rainfall, high temperatures and the soil type predominantly found on the island. Recently a demonstration was performed on a stretch of road at the Naco Golf & Country Club near Santo Domingo with EarthZyme, a 100% environmentally friendly soil stabilizer that is ...

  • Cellular confinement system stabilizes poor soil base, Kent County, Michigan

    'One area that many counties struggle with in road construction is poor soils,” says Tom Byle, maintenance and local road construction engineer for the Kent County Road Commission, Kent County, Mich. “Many country roads in America were built over muck, swamps or other similar, inadequate soils. Most counties cannot justify the expense of the standard peatremoval treatment, digging the peat out ...

  • Millstone Manor Parking Lot Stabilization - Case Study

    Shallow utilities won’t get in the way of our high strength woven geotextile’s ability to stabilize this parking lot. Millstone Manor, an apartment complex located right next to the Ogden River at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, had been having difficulty stabilizing their parking areas for years. Due to its proximity to a water source and resulting soil types, the CBR ...

  • Snoqualmie falls riverbank stabilization case study

    Puget Sound Energy - Snoqualmie Falls Redevelopment Project In 2009, PugetSound Energy began a comprehensive upgrade of the hydroelectric infrastructure at Snoqualmie Falls - a power generation facility built in 1890. Loose soils and heavy rainfall contributed to a landslide along the Snoqualmie River bank in the Fall of 2010, and GeoEngineers was commissioned to provide a long-term design ...

  • Factors Affecting Disinfection and Stabilization of Sewage Sludge

    ABSTRACTEffective disinfection and stabilization of sewage sludge prior to land application is essential to not only protect human health, but also to convince the public of its benefits and safety. A basic understanding of the key factors involved in producing a stable biosolid product is a necessary component to ensuring that effective disinfection and stabilization are achieved. Key stressors ...

  • Soil Flushing

    Introduction In situ soil flushing is the extraction of contaminants from the soil with water or other suitable aqueous solutions. Soil flushing is accomplished by passing the extraction fluid through in-place soils using an injection or infiltration process. Extraction fluids must be recovered from the underlying aquifer and, when possible, they are recycled. Cosolvent Enhancement Cosolvent ...

  • Reclaimed municipal wastewater for forage production

    This study aims to evaluate the possibility of using reclaimed municipal wastewater for agricultural purpose. We assessed the validity of municipal wastewater treatment, analyzing its chemical characteristics before and after the biological stabilization by pond treatment (WSP). The reclaimed municipal treated wastewater (TWW) was used to irrigate Cenchrus ciliaris. Experiments were carried ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Radionuclides in Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Unlike organic contaminants (and similar to metals), radionuclides cannot be destroyed or degraded; therefore, remediation technologies applicable to radionuclides involve separation, concentration/volume reduction, and/or immobilization. The most commonly used treatment technology for radionuclides in soil, sediment, and sludge is solidification/stabilization (S/S). This treatment technology is ...

  • In-situ stabilization of contaminated sediments at former pesticide facility case study

  • Areas Where Revetment Mats Can Provide Structure and Ground Stability

    First things first—what does the term revetment mean in relation to erosion control? Well, revetments are like sloping walls placed just right to block or drain invading water before it can destroy a surrounding ground, like riverbanks, beaches, cliffs and man-made waterways. Containing articulated concrete, a revetment mat installation—consisting of one or more pieces—is the ...

  • Impact of Lime Dose and Mixing Quality on Odor Generation by Lime-Stabilized Biosolids

    ABSTRACTOdor generated from lime-stabilized biosolids with various lime doses and mixing regimes was studied during two bench scale experiments over four weeks of storage to determine the correlation between the lime stabilization process and odor strength. For the first bench scale experiment, dewatered solids were mixed with various lime doses (4.5% and 11.7% by wet weight) under various mixing ...

  • Using Coir Geotextiles for soil erosion control

    One of the most effective and yet natural soil erosion prevention techniques is the use of Coir Geotextiles fabrics ( Woven Geotextiles).
