The use of geosynthetics in geothermal heat exchange applications was explored during a recent webinar.
IGS North America President John McCartney presented his insights as part of IGS Brazil’s webinar series.
Prof McCartney, of the Department of Structural Engineering at the University of California San Diego, spoke about research opportunities and practical implementation techniques to improve energy efficiency.
Obtaining thermal energy sustainably and efficiently to help reduce carbon emissions was also discussed. Tips were shared on how geotechnical engineers could contribute to these important goals.
Online participants had the opportunity to quiz Prof McCartney in a Q&A during the event, which was hosted by IGS Brazil member and Chair of the IGS Panamerican Activities Committee Flavio Montez.
