Towards a climate neutral and resource efficient soil stabilization additive (New-Soil-Bind)

Reference number
Coordinator Chalmers Tekniska Högskola AB - Architecture and Civil Engineering
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 300 000
Project duration May 2021 - May 2024
Status Ongoing
Venture The strategic innovation program InfraSweden
Call Solutions for faster development of transport infrastructure

Purpose and goal

The proposed project aims to enable obtaining a more sustainable transport infrastructure in Sweden, through replacement of cement utilized for soil stabilization with available industrial wastes or minimal natural resources, which in turn not only benefits the climate neutrality goals but can also create circular economy and resource efficiency in the transport sector. The material flows in focus are considered with scalability, through promoting market segmentation and flexibility to exploit local opportunities for raw materials.

Expected effects and result

The proposed project supports Infrasweden2030s’ vision not only by achieving lower environmental footprint but also with creating innovation as well as a dynamic and attractive multidisciplinary environment. However, the vary main connection of the project to the defined focus areas of the program, is through obtaining a climate neutral infrastructure.

Planned approach and implementation

the project is planned in three work packages: 1.Administration and material flow management (Circular Economy scenarios): To obtain and define the relationships and managemental systems required for enabling material flows in the defined value chain for the product in focus. 2.Prototype design (TRL6): To develop new binders and aggregates/fillers to be utilized for soil stabilization in laboratory scale in a simulated environmental condition. 3.Demonstration (TRL7): To apply the developed materials in a pilot scale real application.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
