Yi,

 

Check out www.geofoam.org.

Here in the Chicago area a geotech firm we have worked with ECS

Has done projects in the area using geofoam for many applications.

Their website is http://www.ecslimited.com/

Does anyone, on the west coast (or any where else), have any experience using geofoam for backfill to reduce earth pressure on retaining structures?  Appraciate any thoughts or comments on that.
