Performance of high-quality drainage geocomposites and analysis of the carbon footprint vs. conventional solutions

Shortage of natural resources is leading the industry towards an accelerated pace in the use of geosynthetics. However, misconceptions around their properties often obstruct this progression via environment-friendly solutions. Regarding the drainage of fluids, revolutionary products provide not only better hydraulic and mechanical performances than traditional solutions based on granular layers, but also lower installation costs. Moreover, when comparing the volumes and weights surrounding both solutions, the logistic footprint is drastically reduced. Overall, drainage geocomposites emerge as a cost-effective solution against conventional designs and are presented to become a key player within every sector of the industry.
