The Browns Plain Facility needed to ensure the construction of new cells minimised pollution streams such as waste leachate. The designer needed to develop a plan for providing a cost effective low permeable lining system based on the latest available technologies. In addition, the designer needed to check potential systems and research the findings to ensure the chosen system would meet local landfill guidelines. Most importantly, they needed to control potential risks to ensure that any potential pollutants were addressed.
Coir products (also known as coconut fibre products) and Jute are natural and biodegradable solutions suited to combat erosion control in any environmentally sensitive location. Constructed from coconut fibres, coir erosion control products provide natural temporary support systems until vegetation is able to establish. Coconut fibres, best known for their high strength and biodegradable nature, making them a great choice for wetlands, protected areas, and shorelines. Whereas Jute is made from jute yarn.
Part 1 of this webinar series will feature the 20 years of research and field trials, sustainability evaluation, design guidelines, and appropriate applications of this system.
