Portuguese Webinar: ‘Sustainable Solutions in Geosynthetic-Reinforced Soils’


Portuguese speakers are set to enjoy a webinar covering ‘Sustainable Solutions in Geosynthetic Reinforced Soils’ later this month.

The IGS Pan American Committee is hosting this event in Portuguese, where speaker Ennio Palmeira, Ph.D. will present and discuss sustainable applications of geosynthetics in reinforced soil works. 

Examples of uses of geosynthetics in geosynthetic-reinforced soil works will be shown, combining such materials with construction and demolition waste, mining tailings, and poor quality soils, including examples of applications in road and railway pavements and containment structures.

The event will take place online on August 24, 2021, at 12:00 pm CST.
