Tyumen Scientists Created Eco-Friendly Material for Road Construction in the Arctic

Scientists of the Tyumen Industrial University together with colleagues from the Earth Cryosphere Institute, of the RAS Siberian Branch, have developed an eco-friendly material for road construction. The granular heat-insulating material from natural raw materials, diatomite, helps to combat the heaving properties of the roads, that is, the phenomenon in which the soil bloats due to the freezing of moisture in the ground.

      Granular diatomite is used for the construction of houses, buildings and structures. It can also be used for nuclear power plants and spacecraft, that is, where heat insulation and light weight are needed. However, its most important application is improving the quality of roads.
