Wicking Geotextiles Getting Noticed by US DOTs

Roughly eight years ago, TenCate Geosynthetics was involved in a now well-studied project along Alaska’s Dalton Highway. The road served as the only ground transportation route between the oil fields at Prudhoe Bay and the city of Fairbanks, but the extreme northern environment caused significant degradation along the 500-mile highway due to frost heave. Wicking geotextiles were proposed to streng... »

Mine Haul Roads on Composite Geogrids in Northern Ontario

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... »
