92% less CO₂ emissions with woven geotextile in airport infrastructure

The use of a woven geotextile in renovating Ostend-Bruges Airport's runway replaced traditional gravel methods, significantly reducing CO2 emissions. Compared to gravel, the geotextile required only three trucks for transport, resulting in a 92% reduction in CO2 emissions. Its polypropylene (PP) composition further enhances environmental benefits over polyester (PET) granulate.

The geotextile acts as a separation layer between fractions, providing rigidity through its E-modulus property, and offering strong tensile strength with good soil density. The geotextile thus combines environmental advantages with functional superiority, showcasing its role in sustainable infrastructure solutions.
