Capping system for waste areas

Instead of using traditional (mineral) products if we use geosynthetics materials for the capping of waste disposal areas we may have extra storage. So, to use geosynthetics has economic advantages against the traditional products. Also it is more easy to use geosynthetics (geotextiles, geomembranes, geogrids, geocomposites, geomats).

On the picture above you can see a simple comparison of “traditional” mineral- and “geosynthetic” capping of landfills.

As seen the mineral seal and drainage section have much thickness than the geosynthetics drainage and geomembrane seals.

Geocomposite drainage materials are used both for gas and water drainage.
