Solmax Unifies Its Global Brand under One Name

When Solmax announced its acquisition of GSE Environmental in December 2017, the geosynthetics field and containment market professionals were unsure of how to interpret the move. Both companies were seen as giants in the world market, but GSE was perceived to be the larger entity. While they both had similar corporate cultures from a quality and innovation perspective, they had developed their ow... »

ClosureTurf Final Cover Systems from AGRU America

10 Years Ago, Watershed Geo Significantly Changed Closure Applications

A decade ago, options in closure applications changed dramatically with the debut of two unique systems: one was an exposed membrane with thin-film photovoltaic (solar energy) cells adhered to the membrane surface; the other combined geomembrane and synthetic turf layers. Both systems provided green engineering benefits, strong stormwater shedding performance, and long-term cost savings. Only one ... »

I-CORP on 2018’s Most Interesting and On-Going Projects

Dr. Ian Peggs, PE, PEng, started an international print newsletter in the 1990s. That publication, Industry Insight, evolved out of its print format and into the digital publication Geosynthetica. While Dr. Peggs sold Geosynthetica in 2010, we have the great privilege of retaining a strong relationship with him. Geosynthetica’s team is excited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication i... »

Educate the Educators - IGS

ACIGS Bringing IGS Educate the Educators to Australia

The International Geosynthetics Society’s Educate the Educators program has had a substantial and beneficial impact on college-level geotechnical and civil engineering programs. EtE workshops provide high-caliber professional development and resources for professors and instructors to incorporate geosynthetics into their curricula. The endeavor is essential, as too many young engineers enter the f... »
