This tested sealing solution is ideal for carbon sequestration or compressed air storage for wind energy.
This dual component system is a mechanical seal that is created whilst pressure grouted into a failed joint or cavernous area.
NOH30 was developed for the sealing of abandoned underground mines or caverns for the storage of renewable green energy. This tested sealing solution is ideal for deep underground carbon sequestration or compressed air storage for wind energy. Sovereign’s North American and West Australian research teams successfully conducted trials in the USA in underground sealed mine caverns at pressures exceeding 5000 P.S.I
This multi-component system forms a mechanical seal that is created whilst pressure grouted into failed joint or cavernous areas – been it a joint, crack or failed structure.
The blend of components reacts with one another even in the presence of water. Although tough, the material remains flexible and forms an impermeable water barrier with remarkable adhesion qualities.
This remote joint replacement technology has endured vigorous high pressure trials in excess of 5000 P.S.I with excellent results. NOH30 may be used in wet or dry conditions making it particularly suitable for geo-sequestration.
NOH30 is used for joint and crack repair, especially in inaccessible joints and cracks where access is by means of drilled holes into the cavernous areas.
NOH30 found use with the repair of cracks and joints in lift wells, bulkheads, nuclear & military silos, underground depositories, water plugs, pipe entries, drainage systems, manholes and pits, soak wells, underground faults, reservoirs, dam walls and tunnels.
This product also found use in the mining industry where nuisance water and methane gas in hard rock conditions had to be blocked. Excellent results were achieved in halite / concrete interface sealing – even with brine present.
Sovereign believe that the development of this technology will support the development of renewable and clean energy – storing wind energy in an underground "battery". Carbon sequestration, although experimental is now a possibility in sealed underground worked out mines or caverns.
