GeoΠBlock is an innovative geo-engineered cuboid that uses dredged sediment as the primary aggregate.
Based on proven technology, GeoΠBlock has the potential to turn what is currently defined as a waste material, into a viable product with the main application as an alternative to rock armour (Riprap).
Although the stabilisation and consolidation of dredged sediment is not a new concept. The GeoΠBlock platform brings together research institutes and end-users, ensuring information sharing, cost sharing and accelerating innovation.
Due to the heterogeneity of dredged sediment, stabilisation is achieved with a bespoke mix of binders tailored to suit the characteristics of the dredged material.
This valorisation of a waste material promotes the sustainable and efficient use of resources, whilst creating a circular economy.
