Webinar: Geosynthetics for coal combustion residual (CCR) applications

Events, News | June 11, 2019 | By:

The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) will sponsor a free webinar, “Geosynthetics for Coal Combustion Residual (CCR) Applications,” on June 25, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. CDT.

This webinar will discuss the application of geosynthetic products for use in coal combustion residual (CCR) landfills and impoundments. The webinar will provide an overview of the available product categories including geosynthetic clay liners and geomembranes, and will discuss engineering considerations for using these products in CCR containment applications. Both design and construction considerations will be addressed. 

The webinar will be taught by Jason Ross, a project engineer with S&ME Inc. in Columbus, Ohio. Ross earned his B.S. and M.S. in civil engineering from The Ohio State University where he studied the interface shear strength of geosynthetics including geomembranes and geosynthetic clay liners. Since graduating, he has completed both design and construction quality control projects for coal combustion residual landfills and impoundments. Ross is a licensed professional engineer in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Embankments, Dams and Slopes Technical Committee of the Geo-Institute. He is certified by the Geosynthetics Research Institute’s Inspector’s Certification Program (GCI-ICP) for both geosynthetics and compacted clay liners.

The webinar carries 1 professional development hour (PDH).
