After being postponed for so many months due to the health emergency, EUROGEO7, the 7th European Geosynthetics Conference will take place at last in Warsaw from 4 to 7 September 2022. We will be participating with our thirty years of experience and our innovative flow of products and functions.
We will be attending with ourTeMa Geo Solutions division, specialized in developing innovative technologies and products for protection, maintenance, retention, reinforcement and drainage in environmental works.
We have achieved these goals because since 1993, when TeMa was established, geosynthetic products have been our targeted approach to geotechnical and environmental applications. At a time when there was little talk of ecosystems, we developed considerable experience in this field, deploying new technologies and finding crucial improvements in terms of durability and less invasive intervention works using geosynthetic products.
The many fields of application range from the most important functions to be addressed in the fields of geotechnical engineering, reinforced earth structures and reinforced soil, to name but a few. They are highly impressive in the fields of hillside agriculture and the urban regeneration of small villages: drainage and filtration for landfills and contaminated sites; roads, railways and other transport applications; rainwater management.
What will TeMa Geo Solutions explore?
The focus is on geosynthetic products and the aspects that make them versatile, high-performance and innovative in geotechnical engineering applications. In particular, we will be focusing on TeMa Geo Solutions technologies for:
- removing seepage water using drainage geocomposites bonded with a nonwoven geotextile;
- reinforcement and stabilization with geogrids;
- the drainage capacity for the cap, bottom and sides of landfills with geonets;
- erosion control and drainage with geomats.
Our technicians will be available to provide catalogues and data sheets with performance details.

Being an international company does not mean selling abroad. It means creating or adapting products to the needs of other countries worldwide. Products that are naturally different to ours because the morphology of the land, the climate, the critical issues at stake and therefore people’s needs, are different.
In this sense, internationalisation is the result of a corporate approach to research and the technological development of products, materials and processes. Each division of the TeMa Group, namely Interior Solutions, Building Solutions and Geo Solutions, requires technical performance, a skilled workforce and know-how that is always at the cutting edge.
TeMa Group’s labs
New products, superior performance and innovative materials are the result of close interaction between our technical/design departments and our testing and quality control labs. Not only dimensional analysis and structural checks but also durability, compression and waterproofing tests are carried out in order to test the products against set quality standards. Here are some examples. For TeMa Interior Solutions, ANSI A118.10 (American National Standard Specifications) are the standard requirements for load-bearing, bonded, waterproof membranes for laying ceramic and natural stone tiles. For TeMa Building Solutions, in addition to the CE mark, membranes bear a Declaration of Performance (DOP) that certifies how they respond to the applications for which they are intended. For TeMa Geo Solutions, the UNI EN ISO 90001:2000 certified quality system ensures that the entire production is at peak performance levels.
TeMa Group partnerships
To be forward-looking and offer innovative products, materials and processes, it is essential for us to establish collaborations and partnerships with research institutes and organisations, also on a global basis. Since 2006, TeMa Technologies and Materials has been a member of IGS, the International Geosynthetics Society, an association committed to developing geosynthetic products from a scientific and engineering perspective. Its main goal is to promote the appropriate use of these materials and their related technology worldwide.
Continuous updating therefore allows us to offer innovative solutions in line with the ever-changing needs of the market. Below you will find some interesting events planned for the year 2021-2022.
EUROGEO7, in Warsaw (Poland), from 19-22 September 2021. With the spotlight on geosynthetic products, many sessions will be offered, from using these materials in new sectors to the role they will play in the circular economy.
12 ICG 2023, in Rome, from 17-21 September 2023. The 12th International Conference on Geosynthetics. The event will focus on interaction between the academic and professional worlds and on the latest technological developments in various sectors for a more resilient planet (Geosynthetics, Leading the Way to a Resilient Planet).
