The mass stabilization method and equipment prototypes needed for its application were developed in Finland, in the beginning of the 1990s. Starting from the year 1993, the first large applications had included mass stabilization of peat areas in some road and railway line construction works in Finland and Sweden. Good experience acquired through those projects has led to the expanded possibilities of application for this method.
Since 1996, mass stabilization has been also employed for processing soft/polluted dredged sediments allowing for their further utilization as a material in various port development construction activities. The past decade brought fast development of mass stabilization equipment, binders and various new applications. The method has been implemented in numerous countries, in various infrastructure and environmental engineering applications proving to be an economic and eco-efficient solution.
The Mass Stabilization method is:
- Superior in Terms of Economics, Technique and Environment
- Supporting Sustainable Development - Diminishing the Use of Natural Aggregates; Less CO2 -emissions
- Supporting Recycling of Natural and Industrial Surplus Materials
- Saving Energy and Natural Resources
- Enabling to Utilise Dredged Sludge, Contaminated Soils and Soft Soils
- Transforming Low Quality Soil Areas into Fit for Construction in a Cost-Effective Way
