The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) will sponsor a free webinar, “Use of Geomembranes in CCR Landfills,” on Nov. 11, at noon CDT. Watching the webinar carries 1 professional development hour (PDH).

This presentation will cover the use of geomembranes in providing base liners for coal combustion residuals (CCR or coal ash) landfills, aiding in addressing CCR landfill operational issues and serving in closure systems for CCR landfills and impoundments. The focus of the presentation will be the applications of geomembranes to different aspects of CCR storage facilities. A short discussion will also be held on potential constructability issues that may impact the design of a landfill or a pond closure, specifically those that may impact selection of interface strength parameters such as interface moisture and accumulative strain.

The webinar will be presented by Pedro Amaya, P.E., a senior consultant at GEI Consultants Inc. in Columbus, Ohio.
