Landfilling of shredder residue
Reduced environmental impact and costs by shorter landfill after-care period
The management of landfills after closure (also known as the after-care period) is one of the most challenging issues related to landfilling of waste. This is because of the high impact potential spanning a duration of several hundred years. Our client was facing a similar challenge. In order to help them overcome it, we focussed on implementing accelerated percolation. This was done to effectively shorten the after-care period. It also helped to enhance the leaching of potential contaminants in the early years of the after-care period, thereby allowing proper leachate treatment and minimising environmental burden.
