The extensive research, development, testing, and patents and the Neoloy® nano-polymeric alloy (NPA) for PRS-Neoweb™ geocells are evidence of PRS’ leadership in the field of geocells. These efforts included collaborative research with world renowned geotechnical experts and researchers, with over 55 professional published papers in the last 10 years.
The collaborative testing and certification program also included leading institutes and transportation authority’s around the world, such as US Federal and State Departments of Transportation (DOTs), The Mid-America Transportation Center, the US Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), RZD Russian National Railways, KOAC-NPC Road Standards Institute, Holland, Indian Roads Congress and other standards, geosynthetics and transportation bodies around the world.
The published research with PRS-Neoweb geocells is divided into the following general categories.
