“While the AASHTO M-288 specification has been in existence for over 25 years and the NTPEP evaluation and listing of tested geotextiles began in 2000, the adaptation of M-288 by the individual states has been limited. At last count, only 16 states have fully adapted M-288, 9 other states utilize portions of M-288 in their specifications, and 9 states require NTPEP evaluation of geotextiles prior to acceptance for use on their projects (one of these states only uses a portion of M-288 for their geotextile specification and another one uses their own independent specifications).” – from the NTPEP work plan
“Reducing the need to constantly maintain your well pads and access roads with additional grading and aggregate also helps our environment. CO2 emissions are kept to a minimum, as your site remains stabilized throughout its life.” – how geosynthetics improve the oil & gas market
“TenCate’s flexibile pavement design software originally only allowed for a base course reduction, but now also allows for asphalt reduction.  In addition, the designer now has the option to use permeable pavers in the design.” – on the MiraSpec software updates
