Industrial Landfill Waste Disposal and Management Solutions

Industrial Landfill Application

Industrial Landfill Application

Soil erosion continually plagues the ongoing management of industrial landfills and other environmental containment applications involving the constant rebuilding of slopes that have been gradually weakened by adverse weather conditions. In addition to ongoing maintenance headaches, traditional systems that utilize soil as their main component are costly to maintain, slow to install, and introduce unwanted slope instabilities in industrial landfill areas.

However, there is an alternative solution available for these challenging applications that addresses the lessons learned by the solid waste management industry since the implementation of Subtitle D. This innovative solution is called ClosureTurf®, which meets and/or exceeds the requirements set forth by the EPA in Subtitle D. The ClosureTurf system offers exceptional robustness and a pleasing aesthetic component at a much lower cost than traditional practices.

Should the site not be regulated by Subtitle D, VersaCap™ provides an effective intermediate cover system that minimizes soil erosion and stabilizes industrial landfill sites. There are many industrial landfill waste applications that either ClosureTurf or VersaCap works well for as bulleted below.

  • Cement Kiln Dust (CKD) Landfills
  • Paper Mill Sludge Waste Landfills
  • Pulp Sludge Waste
  • Landfills
  • Mining Debris

Effective Industrial Landfill Waste Management Solutions

Watershed Geo engineers and manufactures effective industrial landfill waste management solutions that overcome the traditional challenges of:

  • Groundwater contamination
  • Leachate production
  • Static load failures
  • Constantly rebuilding failing slopes
ClosureTurf™ Industrial Landfill

ClosureTurf™ Industrial Landfill

ClosureTurf is an engineered Subtitle D compliant system that is specifically designed to remedy both soil erosion failure and gas system failure, as well as promoting slope integrity and reducing leachate gas emissions. Its unique horizontal surficial gas system ensures the long life of waste landfills, and is suitable for full landfill closures as well as incremental landfill closures. A three-component system, ClosureTurf is revolutionizing the way that engineers, owners, government agencies and many others solve landfill containment challenges, and can be employed to handle municipal solid waste, hazardous waste, industrial solid waste and coal combustion residuals.

Unlike other traditional exposed geomembrane covers, VersaCap is an engineered turf landfill cover that features a strong polyethylene (PE) geomembrane backing. This backing helps to reduce soil erosion and landfill leachate production. A VersaCap installation can last more than a decade and substantially reduces operating costs.
