Renewable Energy

Your environmentally-friendly backfill solution.

With the growth of renewable energy sources as a method of electrical generation in the United States, providers are increasingly searching for an installation backfill method that is not only stable and reliable, but also environmentally friendly. The production of the most common backfill material, concrete, is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions in the world. One study from the global think-tank Chatham House found that the production of concrete and cement accounts for 8 percent of all global carbon dioxide emissions in a single year, more than all other countries' CO2 output except China and the United States. As such, many renewable energy providers are wary of using concrete — if your goal is to lower our dependence on fossil fuels and reduce our carbon output, why use the dirtiest backfill material around? BMK has the perfect solution for renewable energy providers looking for a green backfill material for their turbine or solar-panel installation needs with our selection of polyurethane foam-based products. Our Polecrete® family of products, including Polecrete® HD for more demanding applications (like large windmills or mounting poles more than 100 feet tall) and Hydro Polecrete® for moist soil types, provides ease of use and more importantly have been proven by the EPA to not contribute to ozone depletion or global warming. For smaller applications like individual solar-panel installation, we offer Postloc®, which offers the same strength as Polecrete® but in a smaller package. BMK products are proven effective in all soil and ground types and are built to last for generations. In addition to their proven atmospheric benefits, they do not require water in order to set, unlike concrete or soil. Just combine the two-part solution, shake, and pour into a hole. The foam then expands up to 15 times its original size and permanently sets in as little as 15 minutes. This also means that no specialized crews or equipment are required to install BMK products. For more information on how BMK foam products are the green way to install renewable energy transmission equipment, call us at 314-344-3330 or contact us online.
