Green Engineering in Taiwan - Disastrous Slope Failure Reconstruction projectThe concept of green engineering applied in the civil engineering field was resulted from the concerns of the environmental protection, energy saving, carbon reduction, vegetation, and changes of ecological variety. Many geosynthetic applications are viewed as green construction methods which are good for the world suffering from the impact of climate change. Here is one case of geosynthetic application in slope failure rehabilitation to support the opinion.
In this introduced case, a reinforced earth retaining wall with wrap-around facing is adopted to fix a 25 m height collapsed slope. The construction method ensures the safety and cost-effectiveness of the project, and further brings benefits in ecology and environment. In comparison of concrete retaining wall, the reduction of CO2 emission of materials used in the reinforced earth wall is over 50%.
