About this event

The presentation will look at the continued development of geosynthetics for use in containment applications with reference to current Environment Agency Guidance.

This event will also look at how Eurocode 7 has an impact on the use of geosynthetics in containment to ensure real data, not assumed figures need to be used; as well as looking at case studies to see how we can avoid mistakes and ensure the use of ‘state of the art material’ to meet current regulatory requirements.

The event will be followed by the YGG AGM.
