Attachment brings cement soil innovation

Attachment brings cement soil innovation

The Schökem process showcased at the Bauma trade fair this month promises a new way to economically produce soil cement.

Developed by Kemroc Spezialmaschinen GmbH of Germany, its main element is a 5m-long front-end attachment for medium-sized excavators.

This can simultaneously inject and mix a binder suspension with the soil to create a soil cement structure.

Kemroc says treated soil turns into a stable load-bearing, impermeable structure after a few days of settling time.

Applications include transport route construction, immobilisation of harmful substances and flood control.
