The term 'Geosynthetics' has two parts: the prefix 'geo', referring to an end use associated with improving the performance of civil engineering works involving earth/ground/soil and the suffix 'synthetics', referring to the fact that the materials are almost exclusively from man-made products. The materials used in the manufacture of geosynthetics are primarily synthetic polymers generally derived from crude petroleum oils; although rubber, fiberglass, and other materials are also sometimes used for manufacturing geosynthetics.
