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
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
Patent-pending ProGanics™ Biotic Soil Media™ (BSM™) has been designed as a cost-effective topsoil alternative that accelerates the development of depleted soils/substrates with low organic matter, low nutrient levels and limited biological activity. However, soil testing, interpretation of the test results, and incorporating remedies to improve soils should be a fundamental part of any reclamation or revegetation project. Without a proper understanding of soils or substrates considered for use as growing media to establish vegetation, you can’t predict potential project success. Profile Soil Solutions Software (PS3) provides access to conduct Free Soil Tests along with directions on proper soil collection for testing. PS3 also assists in the interpretation of the soil test and offers prescriptive application rates of various agronomic formulations based on key soil properties such as texture, classification, pH, nutrient levels, organic matter content, electroconductivity, sodium absorption ratio and potentially elevated levels of harmful salts and metals.
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.
