Sustainability of Geosynthetics-Based Landslide Stabilization Solutions

This paper considers the sustainability of geosynthetics-based solutions to mitigate landslide risks. The different types of geosynthetics are briefly described, along with their functions and applications relevant to landslides, emphasizing reinforcement. The paper identifies the sustainability factors to consider when applying geosynthetics for these purposes. The paper then presents an overview based on existing literature to illustrate how geosynthetics typically outperform traditional methods across a range of sustainability criteria across the entire life cycle. The paper shows lastly how the value integrated model for sustainable evaluations (MIVES) tool can be applied to evaluate and compare alternative methods for remediation of landslides and recommends further studies using this tool.
