Abstract

The place occupied by Geotechnics and Geo-environmental Engineering in the 21st century renewable energy cycle has been reviewed and results have shown that for a complete, closed and perfect renewable energy process, the geotechnical engineering processes of soil stabilization, soil improvement and subgrade strengthening and the civil engineering procedures of concrete production should be credited and recognized. Biomass and the by-products of the renewable energy conversion process; fly ash, granulated slag, charcoal and ash have been in use in the stabilization operation without well positioned and full realization that these complete the cycle by kicking back the by-products which should have been disposed as solid waste thereby creating a loop, back into the renewable energy cycle. This is to justify that Geotechnical Engineering and its allied areas maintain a very important place in the renewable energy cycle by closing the loop that should been created should the by-products of renewable energy be disposed as solid waste.
