Innovative Geosynthetic Composites in the Remediation of Contaminated Sites

The use of mineral-based materials for the treatment of contaminated sites has been widely accepted as a remediation technology. Due to the difficulty and the expense of soil remediation process, the call for applications being both effective and cost-effective stands as of high priority. The combined use of geosynthetics and amendments could play a key-role in this effort. Innovative geocomposites performing either as barriers or as filters are briefly presented in this seminar.
