Geo-Cell Manufacturing Facility

This research project will research the use of geo-tech and geo-cells as a stabilization system for soils and roadbeds to reduce the thickness of base materials and control problem soils related to pavement failures. Discussions are underway with the foreign manufacturer to locate distribution and manufacturing facilities nearby. Also there is some interest in using byproducts from biofuels production as a potential source of polyethylene or polyvinyl feedstocks for the geo-cell fabric.
