It is essential to drain the interface and prevent development of a slip plane at the membrane on even quite gentle […]

Why Landfill Construction Quality Assurance is so Important to the Installation of Landfill Geomembrane Liners

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 […]
