Closing a Company Landfill
A company needed the extra space that was being taken up by the landfill and therefore it was closed.
Excavation and installation of a thick base liner were necessary to protect the groundwater.
Closing the industrial landfill was necessary because the new owner needed additional flat surfaces to construct more buildings. Because a number of areas
had mercury contaminations it was necessary to excavate the areas separately and install a thick base liner to protect the groundwater. The entire project was
performed according to the official requirements. The excavation works were performed successively with the non-hazardous material being backfilled in
layers according to the geotechnical requirements. This made possible a flat, stable surface suitable for future industrial use where the official environmental
protection regulations (e.g. groundwater protection and sealing of the surface) were also held to.
Activities: Consulting, detailed planning, excavation supervision, analysis, remediation and backfilling.
