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.

IGS Young Members Committee Photo Contest

In recent years, engineering societies and conferences have wisely put greater emphasis on younger participants in their fields. Geotechnical engineering experienced a substantial growth in materials innovation (e.g., geosynthetics) and project scopes over the past 50 years, and much of that growth was based on the work of engineers now retired or near retirement or who have moved into different d... »
