Case 3 Landfill
The use of Geosynthetics leads to lower impact in nearly all categories:
~ 69% lower overall climate change impact of the construction and disposal efforts of a conventional drainage layer.
~ 67% reduction in CO 2 emissions, which is equivalent with savings of 220 tons CO 2 - equivalent for a typical landfill site (30,000 m²).
This study shows
The use of geosynthetics leads to:
lower environmental impacts in all impact categories considered , except land competition which is about the same in both cases
220 tons CO2-eq saving on a landfill with an area of 30,000m²
