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,...
Application: In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas.
Landfills are active environments. Through natural processes of rainfall, condensation, and decomposition, landfills themselves produce a liquid waste stream, called leachate. Often the leachate contains hazardous materials, so properly managing a landfill requires handling the waste. ISCO offers products and services to help manage leachate including HDPE landfill pipe, perforated and slotted pipe as well as custom fabricated fittings.
Geotextile provides inherently stronger track system that lasts longer, requires little maintenance, and produces a net cost savings. For new track or repairs, there's no need to remove native soil, install our product directly on the subgrade and eliminate contamination from below the ballast.
Resin bound stone is a new and effective way of providing a highly aesthetic surface for your home, business premises or other external or for that matter, internal surface area that is both very robust and load bearing, but also fully permeable or porous. That means that any water or rainwater that hits the surface will freely drain through the resin bound topping and through the Ecogrid base system to naturally dissipate in to the water table.
TenCate geosynthetics enhance the performance and the design life of railway construction structures. For these applications, a TenCate geosynthetic is installed as separation and filter layers in areas where groundwater is a problem. TenCate geosynthetics offer the ideal characteristics of robust mechanical properties coupled with high water flow capabilities.
Quicker, easier, safer transportation means are required. Depending on geographical zones, tunnels can be a must to reach your final destination easily. Decades of experience in tunnel constructions with TenCate Polyfelt P have shown that protection geotextiles replaces the need for drainage material around the tunnel lining.
However enormous a landfill site first appears, it is surprising how quickly - and how ineffectively - it can become full. Regardless of how bulky, resilient or abrasive the waste may be, effective shredding makes best use of the space available by considerably reducing the volume of waste. Metso shredder equipment includes three sizes of mobile shredders with a variety of mounts, all capable of providing a range of grain sizes. This makes it easy to select the most efficient and cost effective shredding solution...
