An aesthetically pleasing, intermediate cover for landfills designed to reduce leachate, minimize erosion and improve water quality runoff.
What is VERSACAP®?
VersaCap® is an impermeable Engineered Turf manufactured with a high strength backing for extra protection. Unlike exposed geomembrane covers which require significant ballasting and that have to be repaired frequently, the VersaCap product can last up to twenty years. The engineered turf helps slow water down and ensures clean surface water runoff, protecting local water sources and surrounding communities alike. Best of all, a VersaCap deployment dramatically lowers maintenance and operational costs over the life of the landfill. It is economically desirable for Municipal Solid Waste budgets.
Used for leachate reduction, landfill gas collection assistance, slope stabilization, landfill downchutes and landfill drainage channel applications.
Stays in Place
Compared to exposed geomembrane covers, the engineered turf fibers significantly reduce wind uplift pressure on VersaCap. It is a wind-resistant membrane that does not require continuous ballast. Patented engineered turf seams are welded to an LLDPE carrier strip for more durable strength and impermeability.
Compared to traditional soil caps, VersaCap significantly reduces leachate generation because of its impermeable backing resulting in lower operational costs.
Controlled and Cleaner Runoff
Compared to exposed geomembrane covers, the engineered turf fibers slow the sheet flow of water runoff for better stormwater management. The runoff is cleaner with no sediment or turbidity. It significantly reduces the need for the clean out of perimeter channels and basins.
VersaCap stays green all year providing a natural vegetative look without the maintenance. Turf colors are available in olive green, field green and tan.
