landfill capping Applications

  • Landfill lining

    GCLs have become the gold standard clay component of composite lining systems used in industrial, hazardous and municipal solid waste landfills. Used alone or in combination with a geomembrane in a composite cover system, GCLs provide significantly lower permeability, improved ease of installation, an increased amount of usable space. In many cases GCLs are more cost-effective than traditional compacted clay liners. GCLs are also not subject to deterioration from differential settlement and freeze-thaw cycles, which can damage traditional compacted clay liners. Important design considerations for GCLs in landfill caps include confining pressure, and potential for ion exchange and desiccation.

  • Premium

    High quality gas sensor solutions for landfill

    State-of-the-art systems enabling easy monitoring of CO2 and CH4 gases. Capped Landfill Sites produce a range of gases, mostly methane and carbon dioxide. Legislation requires that these gases are safely removed from beneath the cap to avoid a physical explosion due to the build-up of pressure beneath the cap. Safe disposal usually entails burning such as flare stacks, internal combustion engines or by processing to produce Methane gas fuel. For large sites with access to power distribution infrastructure internal combustion engines are used to generate electricity which is fed into the local electricity grid. All of the above safe disposal process require the measurement of the Methane content (and in many cases the CO2 concentration). Edinburgh Sensors provide gas sensors for both Methane and CO2 that can be integrated into landfill gas processing systems enabling easy monitoring of these gases.

  • Protection and Filtration for Industry and waste areas

    Geotextiles enhance both drainage and lining systems in environmental applications. In the large industry of waste containment, geotextiles are used to protect and cushion landfill liners and landfill capping systems, and they are used as critical components of geocomposites such as geocomposite drains and geosynthetic clay liners. Heavyweight, needle-punched nonwovens are use as cushion/protection for landfill and pond liners to keep adjacent stones in overlying or underlying drainage layers from puncturing the impermeable liner.
