Augmented geotextiles: A new frontier in selective removal of chemicals from aqueous solutions

August 28th, 2023

With increasing environmental concerns over water pollution and the need for sustainable water management, the development of advanced filtration technologies has become a priority. Augmented geotextiles are an emerging type of functionalized filter media (FFM) and represent a ground-breaking innovation in the field of geotextiles. These novel materials are based on conventional polyethylene terephthalate (PET) […]

Testing a new method for mining-waste storage using polymer-enhanced geosynthetic clay liners

July 31st, 2018

Geosynthetic clay liners (GCL) and polymer-modified geosynthetic clay liners (PMG) are gaining favor for use in industrial waste disposal and ore-processing applications (Athanassopoulos et al. 2015, Donovan et al. 2016a, Donovan et al. 2016b). The GCL or PMG can be a component of a composite liner system that will allow for increased performance (relative to […]
