The Natural Cap – Sustainable solution for landfills

Summary: The remediation of the 100 ha. Volgermeer landfill is a key example of the transition of what was once a heavily polluted waste site into a natural park.

Location: Gelderland, Netherlands (Nederland)

Quality control of technical elements of landfills by an...

Summary: Surface cappings and basal liners of landfills have to meet defined technical requirements. The installed quality is monitored by an independent third party.

Landfill remediation by excavation – Case Treuenbrietzen

Summary: A closed landfill, Treuenbrietzen was remediated by excavation of the landfill body and transfer of the waste to other landfills.

Location: Brandenburg, Germany (Deutschland)

Remediation of a landfill with low risk potential in a rural...

Summary: A closed landfill with low risk potential in a rural environment was remediated by profiling the landfill body and covering the landfill with a soil layer.

Location: Brandenburg, Germany (Deutschland)

Maximizing landfill capacity by vertical expansion

Summary: The project involves the use of compacted waste, using engineered reinforcement to create retaining structures for waste with a 70° slope angle.

Location: Puglia, Italy (Italia)

Remediation of a large-scale landfill by installing a surface...

Summary: The landfill was remediated by capping the landfill body with a surface sealing system and a landfill gas capturing facility.

Location: Brandenburg, Germany (Deutschland)

Remediation of a landfill by a surface sealing system with an...

Summary: A Surface sealing system - a geomembrane and combined a leak control system detects damaged spots in the geomembrane and reduces the risk of hazards.

Using a landfill area after closure of a landfill for a Waste...

Summary: A compaction and reloading station for waste, using the infrastructure of a former landfill, helps to reduce waste volume and optimizes transport logistics.

Location: Brandenburg, Germany (Deutschland)

Possibilities of using a closed landfill area for production of...

Summary: A landfill is an ideal site for a photovoltaic plant. However, the special technical conditions linked with the sealing system have to be considered.

Location: Brandenburg, Germany (Deutschland)

Use of slag for the construction of the drainage layer at the...

Summary: The construction of the drainage layer with slags substitutes the use of natural resources, such as gravel. The ecological footprint of the landfill is reduced.
