Polymer-Enhanced GCL for a Wet Process Ash Impoundment

Polymer-Enhanced GCL for Wet Process Ash Impoundment

By GSE Environmental – An innovative geosynthetic clay liner (GCL) was used for the containment of wet process ash at a 3,520 MW facility in the Southeastern United States. The wet process ash project involved roughly 1,000,000 ft.2 of GSE Bentoliner CAR (Coal Ash Resistant) GCL. The facility owner wanted an impoundment design that would conform to any potential rulings from the US Environmental P... »
