Containment Geosynthetics

Geomembranes and Ice

geosynthetica publishes a number of Tech Docs every year. These come from our underwriters, engineers in the field, and from us. Take for example Dr. Ian D. Peggs' short piece on geomembrane installation designs with ice. Search the Tech Doc database for other articles, or go directly to our TechComposites page where documents are bundled by topic for your convenience. You can access these in the ... »

Billions Needed for Wastewater

A report from the US Environmental Protection Agency suggests that more than $200 billion in capital investments are needed to control wastewater pollution in the next 20 years. The four-year study focused on publicly owned wastewater facilities and marked $134.4 billion for treatement and collection, $54.8 billion for overflow correction and $9 billion for stormwater management.

Conference Mini Review

Read a short review on WASTECON 2007, held in Reno, Nevada, USA, October 16-18 2007. The page also includes a link to the Fall 2007 New York State Association for Solid Waste Management (NYSASWM) newsletter "Wasteline." Bob Phaneuf provides a write-up of the LIS Course that he, Sam Allen of TRI and Ian Peggs, I-CORP INTERNATIONAL organized. The course was co-sponsored in June 2007 (Colonie, Albany... »

Unlined Landfill Proposal

Stacks of gypsum 100 feet high, limestone waste collected and buried for 25 year, and all of it without a liner? That's what a South Carolina power plant operation has proposed...but residents, fearing for the quality of their groundwater, have rejected SCE&G's plan. Learn more here.; »

Extending Capacity

In the landfilling arena, geosynthetic lining systems have become standard not just for their performance over traditional clay liner layers but because even multi-layer systems are significantly thinner. This allows for highly valued capacity increases for the landfill. In Porter, New York, a new proposal would allow for extending a hazardous waste landfill site and construction of a new cell. Le... »

Cover Me

In Namibia, a water shortage is striking the northern portion of the country in part due to repair needs at a vital reservoir. A cyclone struck not long ago and damaged the cover on the reservoir. Evaporation is a serious risk in Namibia. Situations like this underscore the need for containment technologies amidst increasing drought conditions in the world. Geomembrane linings and floating covers ... »
