geofoam properties, development of innovative applications, dissemination of technical
information and technology transfer through education. The center has assisted manufacturers,
engineers and contractors with both large and small projects. GRC has given technical
seminars to state department of transport staff, consulting engineers and university
audiences. Development of standards and performance verification of geofoam projects are also
areas of interest of GRC. The center was established in 1997 through industry support.
