Active geocomposites consist of geotextiles that sandwich various adsorbents, such as activated carbon, oil or heavy metal binders, etc. The use of this innovative treatment systems enable an effective protection of the underground in different application areas. As large-area permeable filters, they selectively stop the flow of contaminants but not the flow of the carrier medium – the water or the vapour. Accordingly, surface sealing and connection to the sewerage system is not required.
Moreover, intervention in the natural flow paths of water is significantly reduced. Equipping or retrofitting structural facilities with permeable geotextile contaminant barriers for soil or water protection can be realized in many places without great expense. Areas of application for these contaminant barriers made of active geocomposites are diverse, for example in traffic infrastructure, storage yards, remediation sites, or to construct with contaminated soils. In this presentation, the approach of active geocomposites and the different application areas will be discussed.
This meeting will be held via Zoom.
This is the first in a series of online workshops designed to give Graduate Members practical examples and expert feedback as they work towards becoming chartered. They are led by experienced engineers who have gone through or are currently going through the chartered process.
A five session course delivered by industry experts to develop in-depth knowledge of health, safety, and welbeing in civil engineering within the UK.
Digital transformation is crucial for sustainable workplaces in construction. BIM professionals will share the impact of digital transformation on sustainable workplace design, government policies promoting BIM adoption, and real-life examples of its benefits.
