Philamon Reviewing the KEGO Container

We have exciting news from Colorado and for Onjinyo! Two pond liners and a collection of desks and school supplies have been sent out to Onjinyo, Kenya to help with building a flow through system to irrigate earth gardens.

This will be a more cost-effective solution than aquaponics that will be more easily reproducible and be much more manageable from both an equipment standpoint and a maintenance standpoint. The agriculture style is much more similar to what is already practiced in Kenya, which will allow them to utilize their native knowledge to the fullest in producing their own food.

Philemon’s trip to Colorado was very productive, as we were able to make a solid plan for action moving forward so that we can continue working toward our goal of helping the Kego Orphanage be able to feed itself and become self-sustaining. The earth gardens will also serve as a science lab where the children can learn hands-on lessons about science, and once they start producing food they can also learn first-hand about economics.

GSI Announces Webinars

"Lifetime Predictions of Covered and Exposed Geosynthetics"

24 October 2018 / 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) USA

With coal representing over 25% of energy sources, the disposal of coal combustion residuals is critical. They are placed in disposal areas either in a dry or wet state. The latter is by slurring behind earthen embankments and several have failed in recent years, e.g., in Spain, Hungary and the U.S. (one in North Carolina, the other in Tennessee). This webinar describes the current status including the detailed stability analysis of several sites. It also mentions that there are over six hundred such facilities in the U.S. along with their approximate geographic locations.

The webinar then addresses, in detail, various geosynthetic related opportunities with disposal sites. All of the methodologies are within the state-of-the-practice of geosynthetic engineering design and construction but are largely unknown or under-utilized in the context of CCR disposal. Each of the nine scenarios is rather detailed and complete such that the webinar participant will be knowledgeably informed of their present status.

GSI Members - $200.00 (USD)

Non GSI Members - $250.00 (USD)
