About ISTT/Membership

13 December 2011 0

The ISTT is the umbrella organisation for trenchless technologists in over 30 countries of the world. In 30 countries, groups of trenchless technologists have their own national groups that are affiliated, while the remainder are registered directly with the ISTT.

Trenchless Technology covers the repair, maintenance, upgrade and new installation of underground utility services using equipment and techniques which avoid or considerably reduce the need for excavation. The ISTT promotes research, training and the more extensive use of Trenchless Technology through publications, co-operation with other NGOs, an annual international conference and an interactive website.

Trenchless Technology is recognised as an environmentally sustainable technology and is particularly suited, for use in densely populated urban areas by reducing disruption to peoples daily lives, social costs (traffic congestion, damage to road surfaces and buildings, air quality), noise and dust. Trenchless technologies also have a considerably reduced carbon footprint compared to trenching in most situations.
