Wildflowers – The Superheroes of Bioengineering!
The seminar will highlight the benefits wildflowers bring to bioengineering, soil reinforcement and pollution mitigation. It will investigate how they stabilise soil and deliver biodiversity for the benefit of wildlife, people and regulatory requirements! Case studies include practical ways to add engineering materials such as Enkazon and Bidim to Wildflower Turf. The session will give an understanding of why wildflowers must be considered for any civil engineering project.
