To fulfil its needed function a gas evidence membrane must have both a reduced permeability to landfill gases and sufficient strength characteristic
We explain why the landfill CQA engineers involved in CQC and CQA hold a such a vital role as the final link in ensuring that the landfill design is constructed to the specified requirements. CQ Engineers never forget! Future generations depend on you!
Inferior geo-composite membranes which should both provide a low permeability membrane to cap a landfill and replace drainage stone otherwise needed above the low permeability layer are being offered which don’t do the job. It is essential to drain the interface and prevent development of a slip plane at the membrane on even quite gentle […]
Landfill CQA Actions up to the Start of Construction Once the landfill design engineer has completed the landfill design and the specification has been substantially completed, it is possible to write the landfill Construction Quality Assurance (CQA) Plan, which the construction contractor will then be required to follow, and which will once completed be reported […]
Landfills nowadays each contain huge amounts of organic materials and hold a huge potential to pollute the local groundwater for generations in the containment systems upon which their design is based fail to function as intended. The engineering of a landfill is no different to other engineered structures, in fact in many ways, especially due […]
