In memory of Peter L. DAVIES  

With heavy hearts, Kaytech mourns the passing of Peter L. DAVIES, a true pioneer and stalwart in the geosynthetics industry. Peter’s contributions have left a lasting mark not only on Kaytech but on the geosynthetics community at large.

Peter’s illustrious career spanned over five decades, during which he dedicated himself tirelessly to advancing geotechnical engineering and geosynthetics. His expertise and passion were evident in every facet of his work, from consulting on geosynthetic applications to educating and mentoring countless individuals within the industry.

As a Senior Fellow and former President of the South African Institute of Waste Management (IWMSA), Peter played a pivotal role in shaping waste management practices and standards in South Africa. His leadership and guidance were instrumental in various waste-related initiatives, including the development of Minimum Requirements for Waste Management Facilities.

Peter’s commitment to knowledge sharing extended beyond formal roles; he generously shared his wealth of expertise through lectures, presentations, and peer-reviewed technical papers. His dedication to educating others on geosynthetics and landfill applications has left a lasting legacy, inspiring future generations of geosynthetics professionals.

Beyond his professional achievements, Peter’s warmth, generosity, and unwavering dedication to his family and community will be remembered fondly by all who had the privilege of knowing him. He leaves behind a loving family, including his wife Janet, children Peter and Genevieve, and cherished grandchildren.

Peter’s impact on the geosynthetics industry and the lives he touched will be felt for years to come. His legacy serves as a beacon of inspiration for us all, reminding us to strive for excellence, to share our knowledge generously, and to approach every challenge with integrity and passion.

In honour of Peter L. DAVIES, let us continue to build upon his legacy and work together to advance the field of geosynthetics in the spirit of his enduring contributions.

Rest in peace, Peter. You will be missed, but your legacy will live on in the countless lives you’ve touched and the impact you’ve made.
