Geosynthetics manufacturer Solmax is sponsoring a series of technical webinars for industry professionals in collaboration with the University of Virginia’s (UVA) School of Engineering. The first webinar, focusing on the evaluation and specification of geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs), launches on 12 August 2020. Geosynthetics are an important part of containment applications for waste, mining, construction, and other critical infrastructure projects, protecting the environment from harmful contaminants. These webinars are intended to be a trusted technical resource for industry to improve the effective use of GCLs.

The webinars will be presented by Craig Benson, Dean of Engineering at UVA. To register for this free GCL webinar series, click here. GCL webinar series:
