Geosynthetics are uniquely suited

October 1st, 2019

Geosynthetics are found in the strangest of places. But that just speaks to how versatile and useful they are for a wide variety of applications. Dewatering, energy-site closure, erosion control, reinforcement and stabilization are just a few applications that geosynthetics address in this issue. In addition, many of the geographic areas discussed here are sensitive […]

Multilinear drainage geocomposites to filter oil sands tailing slurries

October 1st, 2018

Mining and some energy operations generate large quantities of water-containing tailings. These tailings are made of crushed-rock particles that are deposited in a slurry form. This is the case for coal, tar sand, lead, zinc, gold, silver, copper, molybdenum, nickel, taconite (iron), phosphate, bauxite (aluminum oxide), uranium, trona (soda ash) and potash, for example. There […]
