    out in layers The soil is excavated to the required depth for stabilising and mixed with the binder It is sealed to prevent carbonisation of the binder while it reacts with the moisture in the soil and then compacted with a roller The strengthened and improved engineering properties of the soil mean it can then be used for road pavement and foundation construction The guidance from Britpave provides details of the activities standards and records needs for a successful soil stabilisation project It outlines the responsibilities of the project designer manager stabilisation contractor and testing laboratory and provides a breakdown of the process from ground investigation laboratory trials and determination of design properties to site works control and testing Highlighted within the guidance are the necessary record procedures and advice comments based upon real life experience of soil stabilisation projects These guidelines offer the basis for planning a soil stabilisation project and provide a checklist to ensure that each phase is properly carried out said David Jones director of Britpave Soil stabilisation offers an effective solution to the problem of weak unusable soil These new guidelines explain the step needed to achieve a successful project Many Britpave soil stabilisation contractors

    Chana added The European Union has taken a leadership role in climate change and has adopted the ambitious unilateral target of a 20 reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases by 2020 based on 1990 levels The European Council of 10 11 December 2009 reiterated the EU s conditions to move from 20 to 30 These are that other developed countries commit themselves to comparable emission reductions and that developing countries contribute adequately according to their responsibilities and respective capabilities These conditions have so far clearly neither been met by the principal emitters of the other developed countries nor by developing countries Copenhagen has demonstrated that whilst other countries are willing to take action to tackle climate change they are not willing to take comparable or equivalent actions to those proposed by the European Union The UK cement and lime industries fully support the government s ambitious CO2 reduction targets but need a level playing field at a global and European level in order to maintain a healthy domestic manufacturing industry Carbon leakage where cement and lime production moves off shore to countries without comparable carbon constraints taking our climate change responsibility and jobs with it is a real threat if

    nip points The rig see below was transported around site during an onsite safety week before being demonstrated at a local engineering careers evening prior to being presented at other BLA lime producers for best practice sharing The aim is to also promote the rig at upcoming safety workshops Caged access systems in Marez Kilns Category Machinery innovation Company Singleton Birch Limited Challenge Singleton Birch operates four Maerz Lime Kilns During operations there are occasions when personnel have to inspect the inside of a section of the kiln They are working at height and have to lean inside the kiln where possibly they could be at risk of falling in although protected by a work restraint harness An example of worker involvement and innovation A review was undertaken and operators were involved in suggestions of how to carry out the inspections and reduce the likelihood of an incident occurring Before Outcomes One operator Oliver Fisher who had recently joined the company came up with the idea of having a hinged access cage The cage can be swung into place inside the kiln opening thereby eliminating the risk of falling The actual cost for the installation was minimal compared to the
