2019 Australian Landfill and Transfer Stations Conference (Special Feature)


Detailed Workshop Programs Out Now (EXCLUSIVE)
[PDF] https://cloud.excelplas.com/index.php/s/VePl7UQhosQAt5v/download

2019 Australian Landfill and Transfer Stations Conference @ Pullman Mercure in Brisbane QLD on 26-29 March

Landfills and Transfer Stations play an integral role in the waste management industry, providing avenues for materials aggregation and separation, resource recovery, and final disposal. The innovation, design, operation, regulation, and safety of these facilities are all paramount to the services they offer and the future growth areas where services can be expanded and efficiencies gained. Please join us for this premier national event focussing on the areas that matter.

The four day program includes: keynote presentations from both International and Australian experts, technical tours, workshops, concurrent sessions and networking opportunities. Participants will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and learnings, showcase their innovative ideas, hear from industry experts and network with their industry peers.

Workshop A – Advances in Landfill Design and Construction with Geosynthetics
Tuesday 26th March 2019
09:00am – 4:30pm

Workshop A will present an overview of key landfill design objectives and the challenges faced during the construction of landfill cells, with a focus on the construction quality assurance issues. The objectives of this workshop are to:
• Provide an overview of landfill design objectives from local and international experts.
• Consider key challenges in the construction quality assurance process that affect construction schedule and project cost.
• Review geosynthetic testing methods and suggest approaches to address or combat failures.
• Hear from local and international experts about developments in geosynthetics.
• Share recent experiences from practitioners (suppliers, contractors, designers and landfill owners)

Workshop B – Managing Leachate and the Impact of Emerging Contaminants
Tuesday 26th March 2019
09:00am – 4:30pm

Workshop B will address current and emerging issues facing landfill operators in managing leachate generation, treatment and disposal. The objectives of this workshop are to:
• Provide an overview of current practice, needs and recent development across Australia
• Hear from local and international experts about developments in leachate treatment & disposal and the implications of emerging contaminants
• Obtain a regulatory update
• Share recent experiences from practitioners (suppliers, contractors, designers and landfill owners)

Geosynthetics Corner – A Brief Summary on Geonets
Geonet is also geosynthetic material like the geogrid. Geonets are coated with the geotextile material on either side of the geonet and are called as drainage geocomposites. Geonets are made using the analogous manner as the geogrid, but the ribs are interconnected in a homogenous way through the extrusion process. This process continuously creates a net.

Geonets can be categorized in three ways as below.
1) Biplanar: These geonets are the common forms found and the intersection of the ribs have two sets. They are joined with desired spacing and angle according to the design style used.
2) Triplanar: These geonets have more stability because the gaps between the ribs are small.
3) Other types: These are the new types of geonets, where the extrusions are done in the box shape.

Applications of the geonet:
1) Geonets can be used in the construction of the roads as a surface course for both rehabilitation and new construction,
2) Patch works and pot holes fixing on the roads,
3) Reinforcement can be given to the joints in asphalt road,
4) Acts as a layer to drain off the water behind retaining walls,
5) Used as blanket for drainage beneath the surcharge fill, and
6) Used as blanket for drainage beneath the building foundation.

ExcelPlas Assuring the Quality and Durability of HDPE Geomembrane Liners
The use of geomembranes for the containment of solid and liquid waste, for the collection, containment, and conveyance of water, for the pollution protection of groundwater has grown rapidly in recent years. The geomembrane of choice for chemical resistance is still HDPE.  There is approximately 40 years of experience with HDPE liners, during which there have unexpectedly been a number of failures and problems, but from which much has been learned.  However more testing and analysis needs to be done with respect to an HDPE geomembranes particularly in the following areas;
• The effect that blooming of antioxidants in the high performance grades has on field welding
• Heat distortion and partial melting of glossy HDPE liner due to solar heating of parabolic geometries
• Compatibility of HDPE and BGM liners in intimate contact
• Methods for assessing uniformity of antioxidant dispersion in extruded liners
• Premature Embrittlement of white layers on white-surface black geomembrane
• Stress Cracking of HDPE geomembrane due to PFAS detergents/surfactants
• OIT depth profiling through the thickness of HDPE liners to model Fickian diffusion of additives
• Use of Non-Reactive HALS for HDPE liner exposed to highly acid service environments.
• Use of Cyclic Flex testing (Fatigue Testing) to predict long-term integrity of HDPE double wedge welds and the influence of the Heat Affected Zone (HAZ)
