Landfills

Applications

Landfill covers

In landfill cover systems, the synthetic geomembrane must be protected from mechanical damage, which can be easily provided by TenCate Polyfelt P.

Along slopes, additional requirements must be considered: TenCate Polyfelt Rock reinforcement geosynthetics are used to avoid a transfer of tensile forces into the membrane. Seepage and precipitation water is drained off by drainage geocomposites. Finally, erosion-protection mats guarantee a quick and effective vegetation on the slope surface.

Base lining systems

In landfill base lining systems, the synthetic geomembrane must be protected from mechanical damage, which can be provided by TenCate Polyfelt P. Furthermore, the penetration of fines into the drainage layer resulting in its clogging must be prevented. TenCate Polyfelt TS filter geotextiles fulfil this function permanently. Along slopes, additional requirements must be considered: TenCate Polyfelt Rock reinforcement geosynthetics are used to avoid a transfer of tensile forces into the membrane. Seepage water can be drained off to avoid any pressure underneath the membrane by using drainage geocomposites.
