PODCAST: Creating Strong Environmental Programs

Infrastructure projects often shape our futures for the better, but they can also be tremendous sources of pollution—especially without proper attention to erosion and sediment control—and lead to poor relations with a community for a project’s stakeholders. How do we improve these relationships? How do we create strong environmental programs on construction sites? How do we give communities a sen... »

Protecting a Caribbean Shoreline and Coal-Fired Power Plant

TenCate Geosynthetics has published a new video that features how TenCate Geotube® technology was used to repair and protect a Caribbean shoreline. The immediate area included a large utility company, which had seen the shoreline erode significantly over a period of years. Storm surges with waves exceeding 3m had been a major factor in the waterfront deterioration, which had taken 50m of beach. Th... »

PODCAST: Bob Mackey on the State of Geosynthetics Education

A few years ago, the International Geosynthetics Society revived its Educate the Educators program. The initiative was developed in the early 1990s to help educate engineers, regulators, and academics about geosynthetic materials, which were flourishing in field use. More than 20 years later, the field of geosynthetics had grown enormously—but how to engineer with these materials had not become st... »
