New Manufacturing Facility Shows India’s Rise in Geosynthetics

India’s fast-developing economy and large population places extra pressure on the nation to execute large-scale infrastructure development. The resulting investment in roadways, railways, power-grid expansion, and water resources creates a strong market for geosynthetics domestically.  Bolstered by these projects, India has also become a center for geosynthetics production, both for local use and ... »

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 ... »

How to Reduce Stormwater Infrastructure with Porous Pavers

Porous pavement solutions have drawn considerable interest in communities for the green engineering benefits they provide. Grass and gravel porous pavers can greatly reduce stormwater runoff by enabling a high infiltration or percolation rate of water into underlying soils. The permeability of these systems can also trap suspended solids, thus filtering them out of any residual runoff so water tha... »

Interview: Elizabeth Peggs on IGS Two for a Few

At the 11th International Conference on Geosynthetics (September 2018, Seoul), the International Geosynthetics Society recorded another “Two for a Few” interviews, which brings together leaders in the field for a brief talk. This time around, the IGS chose a departing member as the subject: Elizabeth Peggs. Peggs had served as IGS Secretary for 8 years and spent nearly 20 years in geosynthetics. E... »

GAP 2019 Connects Pavement, Railway, and Airfield Engineers

GAP 2019 Extends Abstracts Deadline to February 15

The growing field of transportation geotechnics will be the focus of the inaugural Geo-Structural Aspects of Pavements, Airfields, and Railways Conference (GAP 2019). The event,  managed by Minerva (publisher of Geosynthetica), is being developed in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Railroad Administration, and the U.S. Army Engineer Rese... »
