Cost-effective alternatives to soil and tarps.
Reduce daily cover costs, preserve landfill capacity and provide greater environmental safety with alternative daily cover and capping solutions from Profile Products. Our hydraulically applied alternatives to soil cover use Thermally Refined® wood fibers combined with cellulose fiber and a viscous hydro-colloid tackifier for a thinner, superior barrier. These advanced matrices help to:
- Reduce labor and material costs
- Lower emissions and fuel costs
- Cut down on airborne debris and odor
- Ensure superior coverage while improving the functional lifespan of the landfill
- Improve Landfill Gas Management System efficiency
- Minimize leachate pockets and runoff
- Deter unwanted pests
To help you plan, you’ll find the industry’s most comprehensive collection of erosion control product specifications here.
Alternative Daily Cover
Create a uniform and protective layer using Thermally Refined® wood fibers, combined with cellulose fiber and a viscous hydro-colloid tackifier. BioCover™ Alternative Daily Cover (ADC) is superior to soil, mulch or plastic daily covers.
Capping Soil Enhancement
Waste capping designs employ an intricate progression of barrier and soil layers placed to prevent water (leachate) from entering the confined materials while also establishing vegetative cover to control erosion, reduce sediment discharge and improve visual aesthetics. Typical designs are usually topped with a 6-inch Vegetative Soil Layer (VSL) consisting of topsoil or a manufactured soil per project specifications. Patent-pending ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) is a new, cost-effective alternative to both these expensive options. BSM offer organic material with a full complement of biostimulants and soil building components that accelerate vegetative establishment and work to build sustainable soils directly upon the cover material. ProGanics also offers the convenience and ease of application using standard hydraulic seeding equipment to speed installation time.
Capping Erosion Control and Vegetative Establishment
For maximum growth potential and best possible erosion control for up to 12-18 months, nothing works better than Flexterra® HP-FGM™. This superior hydraulic matrix is made from Thermally Refined® wood fibers and 100% biodegradable components for the best results on challenging slopes. For a shorter-term solution, cost-effective Terra-Matrix™ SMM provides effective erosion control for up to six months.
