    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,...

    Geosynthetic Lining for Canals, Stormwater Impoundments and Wetlands

    Composite laminated GCLs offer puncture and tensile strengths beyond conventional geomembranes. These GCLs offer the low permeability of a geomembrane combined with the high swelling and self healing characteristics of a traditional GCL. With their ease of installation, cost-effectiveness and resilience to physical and climate issues, GCLs are often specified in canals, stormwater impoundments or wetlands to control seepage and conserve valuable water where native soils are too permeable.

    Geosynthetic Lining for Ponds

    GCLs can be used for decorative ponds, golf course water features, fish ponds, water reservoirs, and wastewater lagoons. Their self seaming installation requires no specialized equipment, and their self-healing characteristics promote long life and high performance.

    Geosynthetic Lining for Highway and Civil Applications

    GCL can be used in highway and civil applications such as at airport de-icing facilities used to remove ice build up on the surfaces of planes. During the application process, glycol-based de-icing fluids can leak into local stormwater runoff, potentially causing pollution. CETCO GCLs were found compatible with de-icing fluid (glycol diluted 50/50 with water). GCLs can also be used to line roadway drainage swales for containment and prevent excessive percolation, thereby minimizing potential for groundwater...

    Geosynthetic Lining for Mining Industry

    Geosynthetics are used in construction of various components of modern mining facilities, including process solution ponds, heap leach pads, stormwater containment, wastewater treatment ponds and closures. Harsh environmental conditions provide a challenge to engineers designing the projects. In addition, increasing environmental and cost pressures are requiring lining systems to achieve greater performance levels than ever. GCLs are rapidly becoming a desired component of mining liner systems because of the...
