The Sushen Outer Harbor Line connecting the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal and the Huangpu River is a national high-grade waterway, and the waterway is currently being upgraded. The construction of a secondary bank revetment located in the Wujiang Tuncun section is not poured with traditional reinforced concrete, but is 3D printed with solid waste and assembled into a beautiful ecological bank. This is the first 3D printed inland waterway secondary revetment in China.

According to reports, the 3D printed secondary bank revetment at the Wujiang Tuncun section uses urban construction solid waste and steel power plant solid waste. After high temperature, crushing, grinding and other processes, printing ink is added, and physical solidification is formed naturally with zero energy consumption. Simultaneously realize the innovation and transformation and upgrading of traditional industries, allow solid waste products to be manufactured and leave the factory, and solve the problem of random waste disposal and utilization.

At present, the Suzhou Waterway Department is summarizing this 3D printed secondary revetment experience and forming a construction standard. Next, it is ready to be promoted and used in waterway improvement projects such as the Changhu Shen Line and Sujia Line.
