Thrace Nonwovens & Geosynthetics S.A
Alexandros, Thrace Nonwovens & Geosynthetics Technical Support Geotechnical Civil Engineer, has mainly specialized in Ground Improvement and Soil Reinforcement. As a holder of a master degree in Hydraulic Engineering and PhD in Geotechnical Engineering, he has gained both academic and construction experience. Academically, he has carried out an extensive laboratory investigation on sandy soil permeation grouting. His laboratory research also includes studies and results analysis on the mechanical behaviour of geotextile reinforced soils and the evaluation of the soil-geotextile interface friction. Before joining Thrace Nonwovens & Geosynthetics, he has been involved in many challenging civil engineering projects as a construction site manager.
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.
