The JEC Innovation Awards program is emblematic and recognizes pioneers in composite innovation based on criteria such as partner involvement in the value chain, technicality or commercial applications of innovations.
The JEC Innovation Awards reward composites champions, based on criteria such as partner involvement in the value chain, technicality or commercial applications of innovations.
The JLD dike stabilization system is a sustainable, flexible and innovative solution that was developed for the reinforcement of existing dikes. The JLD dike stabilizer is applied in the inner slope of the dyke and installed from the inner slope or crest. Therefore, no widening of the relevant dyke is required in many cases. The dike stabilization system consists of several parts, including three important parts made from composite material: the anchor rod, the transverse load carrying element (LDE) and the anchoring plate. The anchor rod is a 25mm basalt fibre-reinforced rod with a specially formed thread on the outside. Basalt fibre was chosen because of its higher tensile strength compared to E-glass and better sustainability in the ground.
The JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 13 March at 4.30pm at the Agora stage of the JEC World 2019 exhibition in Paris.
