INTERGRID Landfills

Landfills

Reinforcement geogrids are used to improve the shear resistance of geosynthetic systems installed in caps and closures over steep and long slopes.
Made of high tenacity woven PET yarns protected by a polymeric cover.

Contributions

-Adaptative to irregular surface areas
-Lightweight and flexible composition
-Fast and easy installation, does not require heavy machinery or qualified staff
-Outstanding transportation capacity
-Low carbon footprint

Features

-High tensile resistances of up to 1500 kN/m
-Low elongation
-Excellent creep behavior
-Intimate interaction with any kind of soil

REINFORCEMENT

New cells

Nowadays the raising environmental consciousness made us change the concept of Landfill. It is now impossible to think that a landfill is just a place for storing waste materials.

The modern landfill is a totally waterproofed container, prepared for storing all kinds of inert or dangerous materials, guaranteeing the protection of the environment by:
- a leak detection system of the waterproofing layer.
- drainage and collection of leachates (highly polluting liquids formed by the contact between water and waste materials).

Larger landfills capacities

Capping

Once the landfill is used at its full capacity, it must be capped by:
- a waterproofing layer.
- a rain water drainage system.
- a gas collection system.

To avoid the contact between rain water and waste material, as well as the uncontrolled evacuation of the bio-gas into the atmosphere, these systems also reduce the overpressure caused by the water.

Reduction of the loads on the waste
