Leachate collection drains are placed on the bottom of the existing landfill fraction. These drains consist of a gravel drainage mass, in which perforated drainage pipes are laid to carry the leachate to the lifting wells arranged near to the existing downstream dam; from here, a lifting system channels the leachate into the storage tank situated in the services area for subs area for subsequent transfer to authorised plants for disposal.
The biogas produced by the landfill is captured by a collection system consisting of a drainage well which channels the biogas to the aspiration plant via a specific supply network and finally sends it to high-temperature gas flaring for combustion.
The bottom and the sides of the landfill are sealed with a mineral barrier and a high-density polythene geomembrane.
The landfill´s final covering is formed by a multi-layer packet comprising, from top to bottom, the following layers:
The plant is equipped with a surface water retention and channelling system consisting of a network of surface ditches and a bottom channel.
Checks on the overall stability of the mass is carried out on a periodic basis by means of the scheduled collection of inclinometer readings and topographical and morphological survey data; the efficiency and integrity of the environmental measures (sealing systems, leachate collection and biogas capture networks) are duly checked on a regular basis.
The environmental matrices and emissions monitored as environmental surveillance of the potential impact of the operational management of the landfill are:
