Metal leaching from geosynthetics

August 1st, 2021

Q: Geosynthetics are made from polymers that use metal-based catalysts in their formulations. Do geosynthetics have the potential to leach metals into the environment? A: I think the fair answer to this is yes, but the potential risk is very small due to the long-term stability of the polymers used in geosynthetics and the very […]
