Innovation in the Mining Legacy Sector: Concrete on a Roll™

  • Available to watch on demand now

This webinar will explore the use of CC in the Legacy Mining sector and how it is rapidly establishing itself as the construction material of choice with The Coal Authority.

The material is used for a variety of erosion control applications in the mining sector, including channel lining, slope protection and lagoon lining. CC is typically ten-times faster to install than conventional concrete solutions and is an eco-friendly, lower carbon alternative to traditional concrete solutions. CC is also BBA certified with a durability in excess of 120 years when used in erosion control applications.

CC is uniquely suited for installations in remote mine sites where logistical efficiency is key, and is well suited to use in extreme environments. As a result, not only has it been installed in the UK, but also in mining locations with sub-zero temperatures such as northern British Columbia in Canada and at 4000m altitude in the Chilean Andes.

The webinar covers technical data, installation guidelines and mining case studies from the UK.
