Although engineering technologists may learn about geosynthetics through their work, they may not fully understand the breadth of the product and application range. This presentation will cover the key areas in geosynthetics and product types that are associated with them. It will also touch on some key design issues. Geosynthetics 101 will be a non-biased presentation of the various options and applications for these products. The presentation will help outline their importance and the value that they can provide.

Nilex is a leader in the geosynthetics industry, providing innovative solutions to support the unique challenges of civil, resource and environmental construction projects. Since 1977, Nilex's engineered, technically advanced geosynthetic materials have provided customers with smarter and cheaper proven alternatives to conventional construction practices.
Our smart, environmentally conscious solutions are used in road building, mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) solutions for grade changes, erosion and sediment control, water management and containment. Using the proprietary Nilex ECO2 Calculator, we can calculate the dollar savings and carbon reductions achieved (versus traditional construction methods) by implementing Nilex's engineered geosynthetic materials in your project. In virtually everything we do, Nilex is able to provide our customers with three distinct and concurrent benefits: economic, technical and environmental. We call this Nilex's three-legged stool.
Nilex has offices throughout Canada, in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Saskatoon and Toronto, as well as US offices in Denver and Salt Lake City. With over 40 years’ experience, a long-standing commitment to the environment and highly qualified staff, we deliver a broad range of products and technologies that lessen the environmental impact of a project, while providing an economic advantage to our clients.
