Webinar -Alternative Closure Solutions to Traditional Soil and Geosynthetic Closure Systems– April 10

News | April 2, 2024 | By:

AGRU America is presenting the webinar – Alternative Closure Solutions to Traditional Soil and Geosynthetic Closure Systems – on April 10 at 1 p.m. EST. It is free for members and non-members, a PDH credit is available, and you can register here.

Traditional systems using soil with a combination of geosynthetics have been the preferred method of closing sites for decades. With the cutting-edge experience and expertise of AGRU and Watershed Geo, new methods and technologies have been developed as alternatives to traditional closure systems which offer advantages over traditional systems and solve many of the problems encountered with soil cover systems, such as erosion, post-closure maintenance, and veneer stability.

The speakers are Anthony Johnson, technical product support group business unit manager at AGRU America and John Herrmann, north central region director for Watershed Geo.

Johnson has been in the geosynthetics industry for over 10 years, serving in a variety of roles from applications engineering to technical sales. From projects within the solid waste, energy, mining, and agricultural industries, he has had the opportunity to assist customers in utilizing geosynthetics from project inception to completion. In his current role as the business unit manager for the technical product support group at AGRU America, he is responsible for overseeing the applications engineering and product research and development teams, as well as representing AGRU within industry groups such as the Geosynthetics Research Institute and ASTM.

Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Herrmann is the north central region director for Watershed Geo. He is responsible for managing Watershed Geo’s environmental, civil and renewable energy projects. He has been active working on engineered solutions for multi-disciplinary projects since 2008. He has successfully worked in the areas of sales, engineering and construction of these systems with owners, municipalities, engineers, contractors and government agencies in the residential, industrial, commercial, federal, environmental and energy markets. He earned a B.S. in engineering management from Missouri S&T and is a member of ASCE, APWA and the Engineers Club of St. Louis.
