Attuned to the Client’s sustainability goal for 30% reduction in emissions by year 2030, our team is currently running an ambitious R&D incentive that aims to protect natural resources and promote the reuse of waste materials in geotechnical design and construction. The project aims to expand the code-prescribed application limits of soils to a broader range of backfills that are locally available, hence resulting in lower CO2 emissions during the excavation/transportation process, and better exploitation/management of natural resources. On a parallel route of the project, we are exploring the potential of using demolition waste as a fill-material in earthworks. The project includes real-scale pull-out experiments performed in a highly specialized equipment (developed in-house for the specific R&D endeavor), and foresees the development of a unique experimental database that will facilitate the sustainable and optimized design of the earthworks of the future.
