Safe Petrochemical Storage with Geosynthetic Secondary Containment

In September 2016, a CC HydroTM (CCH) Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Barrier (GCCB) was used to provide secondary containment to a 5000m2 berm face at a petrochemical storage facility in Wales. SemLogistics’ Milford Haven site is one of the largest petroleum products storage facilities in the United Kingdom. It accounts for nearly 25% of the country’s independent multiproduct storage.
