The economical use of resources in road and traffic route construction no longer refers only to economic and ecological criteria in the deployment of construction equipment and personnel. Today, construction projects are subject to an overall sustainability assessment.
In a comprehensive study conducted by EAGM, the life cycle analysis of construction methods using geosynthetics revealed their ecological and economic advantages in comparison to conventional construction methods.
By using BEFORCE Woven Geotextiles, it is possible to largely or completely avoid conventional soil replacement.
The potential savings made, in comparison to soil replacement for example, can be up to 40 %, depending on the project. Added to this are the cost and time savings for excavation and disposal of the unsuitable soil and the provision, delivery and installation of replacement material. At the same time, all these savings also benefit our environment.
*The actual potential savings may vary depending on the boundary conditions of the specific project and on the frost resistance of the road pavement and the load-bearing capacity of the substrate.
