Research Project: Bioshoreline 2

Sequentially biodegradable geotextiles for technical-biological shore stabilization on inland waterways

Logo FNR

FKuR Kunststoff GmbH is researching sequentially biodegradable geotextiles for technical-biological shore stabilization on inland waterways. The second sub-project of the project is about the development and production of biodegradable materials for extruded soil pegs. The overall objective of Bioshoreline 2 is to develop a biodegradable geotextile filter made from renewable raw materials that allows plants to grow in technical-biological shore protection systems and ultimately biodegrades completely.

Geotextile filters are installed in these bank protections to prevent soil from being eroded from the bank by ship-induced impacts until plant roots themselves take over this task. The project “Sequentially biodegradable geotextiles for technical-biological shore stabilization on inland waterways (Bioshoreline 2)” is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) through its project executing agency, the Agency for Renewable Resources.
