Abstract:
With the SmartSoils® initiative, GeoDelft aims to modify the physical and mechanical properties of soil by influencing and speeding up the natural processes that in principle cause these changes. The microbiology, geochemistry and knowledge of micro- and nano structures play an important role in controlling the process. SmartSoils ® represents a paradigmatic change in geo-engineering due to the view that soil can now be made to order.
