VersaCap™ Advantages

  • Compared to traditional intermediate soil covers, VersaCapTM reduces operational costs and eliminates the production of leachate from rainfall.  Where VersaCapTM is installed, soil erosion is elimnated and results in clean runoff as the stormwater is conveyed to the stormwater pond.
  • Unlike exposed geomembrane covers, VersaCapTM does not require ballasting across the surface.  It is a wind-resistant, tufted geomembrane that is secured in existing benches or by shallow trenching when benches are not desired.  The material can provide up to 15 years of life (based on climate) and can be taken up and redeployed in future areas. Seams are welded, not sewn, for higher strength properties.
  • Eliminates the need for cap maintenance such as mowing, erosion repairs and the application of water, fertilizers and pesticides.
  • VersaCapTM significantly increases gas collection efficiency by controlling fugitive emissions and reducing air pollution while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing look not possible with porous intermediate soil covers.
