In-situ soil modification and soil stabilization techniques improve the bearing capacity of the soil to allow foundation construction at locations previously thought unusable. These stabilization activities are completed using RECON's patented low soils and sludge stabilization technology, which is a combination of fly ash, cement/cement kiln dust (CKD), lime/CKD, and other blends. Stabilization and modification technologies include using excavator with rakes or augers, jet grouting and soil mixing.
RECON contracted to stabilize over 2,000,000 cubic yards of zero strength soils along the Gulf Coast for the construction of a new petroleum tank farm. RECON needed to stabilize 500,000 cubic yards within the first 6 months of the project.
GT Omniport, a multimodal facility located in Port Arthur, Texas, is an industrial park and liquids terminal offering rail, truck, barge, pipeline and deepwater ship transloading services. The environmental remediation and civil service construction project included soil preparation, demolishing the concrete and steel structures, clearing, grubbing, crushing concrete, beneficial reuse of of crushed concrete, and soil stabilization using RECON’s patented blend of reagents.
