How to choose the correct high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembrane for demanding applications will be explored at a webinar next month.
Dr. Fady B. Abdelaal, of Queen’s University, Canada, will speak on ‘An approach to high density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembrane selection for challenging design requirements’ at the IGS Technical Committee on Barrier Systems (TC-B) talk.
Dr. Abdelaal will discuss methods for selecting HDPE to ensure a long design life, based on nine to 16 months of experimental data carried out at a range of temperatures. This involved examining the performance of five 2mm thick textured geomembranes (conductive and non-conductive) for a Near Surface Disposal Facility for the long-term management of low level radioactive waste, and identifying if these geomembranes would meet a design life of 550 years.
The webinar takes place on October 25 and is repeated on October 26. Register as follows:
