ADVANTAGES OF TECHGEO FOR LANDFILL APPLICATIONS:

TechGeo polypropylene staple fibre Nonwoven Geotextile serves multifold applications at a Landfill site, which are as follows:

TechGeo acts as a “Cushion” (protection layer) to protect to the Geomembrane liner which is used as barrier against all forms of liquids, gases etc. TechGeo protects the Geomembrane liner against any puncture from any external means.

TechGeo acts as a “Separator” (separation layer) at the landfill sites by preventing the mixing of two dissimilar materials above and below the TechGeo layer. Thereby the TechGeo prevents any clogging of drainage system.

TechGeo acts as a “Filter” (filtration layer) at the landfill site by preventing any soil particles from entering into the drainage system.

TechGeo acts as a “Drain” (drainage media) at the landfill site by allowing in plane drainage of water through it. The drainage of Leachate is carried out by other drainage mediums like drain board etc.
