Landfill Seminars August 2018


Global Synthetics in association with our partners Naue Geosynthetics (Germany and Malaysia) and Skaps (USA) are pleased to provide world leading speakers in the latest technology of landfill and containment structures and the current best practice in product selection, design, construction and final facility acceptance using geosynthetic products.

Geosynthetics are not new and have been in existence since the mid 1970’s. There has been an improved  understanding of the function and performance of such geosynthetics during these 40 years of history and field  performance. There has been an increased level of use of these products with continued product development,  improved design procedures, increasing regulatory governance and the development of more sophisticated research both in the laboratory and in the field to ensure that the selected geosynthetic product fulfills the intended design function over the intended design life.

  • Three World Class Speakers delivering to you the latest in research and industry trends in landfill design.
  • Some critical aspects that should be addressed with respect to potential puncture of geomembranes with drainage layer installation. How can these issues be overcome?
  • Side wall erosion of bentonite within the geosynthetic clay liner (GCL) when left exposed. How can these issues be overcome?
  • Research showing the short term benefits of polymer addition into geosynthetic clay liners (GCL) and the longer term reduction of installed bentonite properties and elution of the polymer. How can these issues be overcome?
  • The use of speciality coated geosynthetic clay liners to overcome issues of desiccation, ion exchange issues and gas emission.
  • A rationale procedure for design of geonets and geocomposite in drainage (fluids and gases), of landfill bases and caps.
  • How to design and monitor, an effective, CQA plan.
