Select Abstracts from the Berlin 2 Geomembrane Workshop

The Berlin 2 geomembrane workshop, held 26 September 2014 in Germany, gathered engineering experts from around the world and who represented multiple perspectives in geosynthetics. The goal was to develop a protocol for better anticipating the end of life–to define end of life–for an exposed, high-density polyethylene geomembrane that is actively in service.

Mine Haul Roads on Composite Geogrids in Northern Ontario

Mines depend on consistent access for site safety, operational efficiency, and profitability. Delays in access can quickly cost active mines millions of dollars in lost production, and that can determine the fate of a site’s continued operation. In Northern Ontario, mine haul roads on composite geogrids have proven to be a highly effective strategy to keep mines running. MINE HAUL ROADS – GEOTECHN... »

Concrete Reinforcement Geogrid Excels in Calgary Project

The City of Calgary wanted to reduce construction and maintenance costs of concrete pedestrian sidewalks. The traditional approach used by the city was to use thick, unreinforced concrete slabs. Yearly rehabilitation work was required to repair major cracking of the slabs shortly after installation. Project planners looked for a reinforcement system that would not be susceptible to corrosion and t... »

Berlin 2 Final Report Seeks End of Life Protocol for HDPE Geomembranes

Immediately following 2014’s 10th International Conference on Geosynthetics (September 2014, Berlin), a high-level, one-day workshop on exposed HDPE geomembranes convened at the headquarters of BAM, Germany’s Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing. The event (Berlin 2) brought together field luminaries who represented not only the international practice but multiple perspective... »

Nonwoven geotextile products are used widely in construction for protection, drainage, filtration, soil separation, etc. Demand for nonwoven geotextile materials has grown, and TenCate Geosynthetics Americas—one of the world’s largest producers—has responded with the commission of a significant new line. TENCATE EXPANDS NONWOVEN GEOTEXTILE PRODUCTION At the company’s Jefferson, Georgia facility, TenCate has installed a state-of-the-art high-quality nonwovens line. The investment includes advanced fiber distribution capabilities to create a uniquely consistent product in appearance and finished roll dimension. It also uses the largest card/cross lapper in the staple fiber geosynthetics industry for the production of both polypropylene and polyester geotextiles. “We are excited to announce this production expansion is now operational,” said John Henderson, P.E., President of TenCate Geosynthetics Americas. “This investment represents another important milestone in TenCate’s strategy and future.” TenCate’s team recognized the new line’s opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on October 15. The company develops solutions and systems for transportation, infrastructure, water management and environmental applications, delivered through synthetic woven, nonwoven, and knitted products. TenCate Geosynthetics has production locations in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Learn more at www.tencategeo.com.
