FMF Cape Breton Phase V - Mass Stabilization
Mass stabilization is a fast and cost-effective method for hardening soft ground by adding binder into the soil. Different types of soils, clay, peat, dredged material and other soft ground materials can be transformed into a solid layer by using the mass stabilization method. This method can also be used for processing and encapsulating contaminated materials containing metals, hydrocarbons and other contaminants of concern. Allterra has successfully stabilized a landfill site where leachable metals were the contaminant of concern in ground conditions consisting of boulders, scrap metal/cable, slag and other ship building waste in a tidal influenced area. Geotechnical applications via mass stabilization include ground improvements for Rail, Oil & Gas, Road Building, Structural Foundations and more. Allterra’s Stabilization System consists of three devices: Allu pressure feeder, power mixing unit and GPS control system.
