We are the initiator of research into deep-soil mixing – a soil improvement technology to improve the stability of rail embankments. This method uses less cement than other stability-enhancing measures of the track body and has a lower CO2 emission than lightweight fill materials and this opens up the possibility of using low emmssion cement substitutes. CO2 emissions are therefore one of the KPIs that we will be dashboarding and we set a target of 2000 tons CO2 per kilometre of reinforced embankment. In this way we can reduce emissions in the construction and demolition phase within the project.
A complete chain analysis can only be drawn up together with our clients. After all, it adds the data in the usage phase, for example through the effect of increasing the train speed.
