Determining the Extent of Oxidation of HDPE Geomembranes by Carbonyl Index (CI)
CI will be measured to determine the extent and rate of oxidation. The use of an attenuated total reflection (ATR) crystal in a Fourier transform
infrared spectrometer (FTIR) will enable the CI of a surface layer of the geomembrane to be quantified.   There is a critical CI (threshold) at which Stress Cracking (SC) is initiated on the Geomembrane surface

New HDPE-Lined Tailings Dam with Novel Floating Evaporation System

Crystal Lagoons  is a company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs using white reflective HDPE geomembrane
