Polymer technology in cost-effective and sustainable road construction

Experts have estimated that the introduction of new technology will significantly reduce the time and cost of building sustainable roads and highways across the country., They hope it will open new horizons in the booming telecommunications sector. Fazle Rabbe, Additional Chief Engineer of the Department of Roads and Highways (SOAZ) said, ‘We can build 100 km of road per month by using this acrylic polymer produced by nanotechnology.Bassar News.

He said A group of preliminary research experts concluded that The technology is suitable for any type of soil in Bangladesh and will reduce road construction costs by at least 30%. said a senior Souz official who led a six-member expert team on the study, Due to the long durability of acrylic polymer roads, maintenance costs will be very low.

our faith, This eco-friendly technology will pave the way for Bangladesh to enter the era of the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) and moreyouThe common theme is, It is now within our reach, Rabbi said. Due to the demand for the expansion of road communications, the budgetary allocation for the communications sector of Bangladesh has increased in recent years.

312.96% for the Department of Road and Highway Transport in the current year budgetCrores are allocated, Or 12.7% of the total development budget. In the outgoing financial year 2021-22, the amount of this allowance was 280.42 lakhs crores of rupees. Various research articles related to construction technology acrylic polymerit is called in the context of nanotechnology, It is an excellent material for reinforcing and stabilizing the ground, It is water resistant and does not require the use of harmful chemicals or fossil fuels.

Non-toxic and non-flammable, this technology is environmentally friendly. Acrylic Polymer Rabbe is ‘almost indestructiblecalled as, The experts involved in his research team strongly believe that, Roads built with this technology will be durable for at least 50 years and maintenance costs will be minimal. Engineer Abul Hossain, a senior member of the research team, said, Field trials of acrylic polymer at Matarbari in the Maheshkhali region of Cox’s Bazar were ‘Very effectiveIt seems like.

He said, They collected soil from 22 districts in different regions of the country and tested K.31 APS acrylic polymer in different proportions in Matarbari region. Meanwhile, Hossain, the acting team leader of consultancy firms related to the road infrastructure components of the Matarbari Coal Power Project, said., They also did a financial analysis and found it very profitable.

Rabbi said, It’s a very cheap, Durable, and simple road construction method and the soil of Bangladesh is also very suitable to be mixed with acrylic polymers. The team conducted an in-depth study of the functionality and feasibility of the technology over a ten-month period from April 2021 to January 2022. They recommended that it be used by organizations such as Souz and the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) as well as the Water Development Board (BWDB) for the construction of dams.

Members of the research team said Technology can be used to build dams and levees faster and cheaper. Department of Road Transport and Highways officials said They held a meeting on the use of acrylic polymer to reduce road costs where Sauz was asked to move forward with the technology under the chairmanship of his ABM secretary Amin Ullah Noori. Construction experts say, Acrylic polymers are currently in the United States, Canada, and Australia, Used in Malaysia and various countries in the Middle East, India, and Bhutan have also started using them for road construction. A member of the investigation team said that The Indian Army has successfully used K.31 APS brand acrylic polymer in the remote and mountainous region of Ladakh in Kashmir and Siliguri along the border with Bangladesh..

The US Navy first developed the product, which the U.S. Army and Air Force later began to use at home and elsewhere. Other members who participated in the study were: Engineer Md. Shahriar Rumi, responsible for the Souz component of the Matarbari project, Deputy Project Manager (Soaz) Md Yunus Ali, Road builder Mir Akhtar, Abu Sadat Sayem, Project Manager, WMCG JV and Waliul Islam, APS Exclusive Channel Partner for K.31 Bangladesh.

Rabbe said while explaining the technique of technology,’ Bricks and stones are traditionally used as the main material for the construction of foundations and sub-bases of pavements. However, no stone or brick will be required in the proposed process..It means, He said, The new technology will play an important role in preventing air pollution in Bangladesh by eliminating the burning process of bricks. He said, The chemical reaction creates a nano-polymerized grid to form a special layer, This makes the road base (base and sub-base) much stronger than conventional road infrastructure. He said, The use of acrylic polymer will greatly reduce the demand for imported stone and save a huge amount of foreign exchange, as 70% of the materials needed for road construction are indigenous.
