„Resources Efficiency in Soil and  Foundation Engineering“ Seminar

The topic of resources efficiency has also increasingly gained in importance in recent years. Soil and foundation engineering occupies a special ranking in this context: soil and rock account for around 60 % of mineral construction waste in Germany.

The major part of this can be recycled, but nearly 18 million tonnes of waste requiring landfill disposal are nonetheless produced every year. Residues of flowable consistency, such as are generated during slurry-wall excavation due to the mixing of the soil with support fluid, or result from the so-called spoil return in jet grouting, are...
