Abstract

Landfill site is a site for the disposal of waste materials It is the most common method of organized waste disposal and remain so in many places around the world The three most important problems with landfill are toxins, leachate and greenhouse gases. Geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) represent a relatively new technology currently gaining acceptance as a barrier system in municipal solid waste landfill applications. Alternative technologies are allowed, however GCL technology offers some unique advantages over conventional bottom liners and covers. Geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) have gained widespread popularity as a substitute for compacted clay liners in cover systems and composite bottom liners. They are being investigated intensively, especially in regard to their permeability characteristics.
