  • Non-Hazardous Landfill - Case Study

    Municipal solid waste landfill is site for domestic day-to-day waste disposal. Its also known as tip, rubbish dump, dumping ground, etc. Material stored at solid waste landfill is isolated from the environment by sealing layer which can be HDPE or LDPE or even PVC geomembrane. If such geomembrane leaks, the contaminant from landfill is spreading in direction of the groundwater flow. ...

  • Innovative use for a landfill compactor in crushing construction and demolition waste (C&D waste) - Case Study

    Expensive and diesel-hungry waste shredder led to an innovation in crushing construction and demolition waste (C&D waste). The compaction force of a twin drum design landfill compactor is unparalleled. When directed straight down onto the unsorted waste or landfill residue, the solid steel crushing teeth bite into the waste. The crushing is so efficient that the required fraction size is ...
