Presto Geosystems has hosted an on-going series of live webinars on a wide range of civil and geotechnical topics, such as mining, slope stabilization, load support, sustainable landfills, etc. These presentations have been shared by the company on an on-demand basis as well.
Here, we share the presentation on Designing Sustainable Landfills Using the GEOWEB® Geocells. See more presentations and learn about upcoming live opportunities on the company’s webcasts page.
SUSTAINABLE LANDFILLS & GEOCELLS
Landfill design stories often focus on the containment function: geomembranes, geosynthetic clay liners, compacted clay, etc. But many other geosynthetic functions are required in landfill design. Geocells provide a solid solution for meetings these functions and improving a waste facility’s sustainability.
In the presentation, environmental scientist Cory Schneider takes viewers through a range of applications in landfill design (new construction, closure) for which geocell systems are used. These areas include:
- Slope stabilization and erosion prevention/control
- Stormwater management
- Membrane protection
- Access/haul road construction and maintenance
- Management of long-term settlement issues at capped cells and closed facilities
Additionally, Schneider providers details on anchoring/tendons to GEOWEB® panels, specification tools, geocell design services, and more.
