April 8 in Geneva, Switzerland
Daniele Cazzuffi, a past president of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS), will headline a six-speaker nonwoven geotextiles workshop Tuesday, April 8, during the Index14 show in Geneva, Switzerland.
Nonwoven geotextile applications traditionally include: road construction, railways, canals, water reservoirs and dams, tunnels and other underground structures, retaining structures and other geotechnical works, storage and disposal of liquid and solid waste, and drainage and erosion control systems.
This workshop will review design, specification, and installation processes, and will also focus on market dynamics and growth opportunities for nonwoven geotextiles.
The workshop will also feature recent applications of nonwoven geotextiles, particularly their effects at reducing snow and ice melt in glaciers in Europe, their use for separation and geomembrane protection in one of the largest coal-fired power stations in the world in Africa, and for dust mitigation at one of the worst particulate matter (PM-10) airborne dust sites in North America.
