Securing hazardous waste in Uganda

Securing hazardous waste in Uganda The Nyamasoga Landfill in Uganda is a critically important hazardous waste facility in the oil-rich Hoima District. The 44 ha site is in close proximity to drilling pads and a proposed refinery. The site is also something of a trailblazer. In the absence of any governing hazardous waste [...]

More than 1,000m² sealed per day at the Hohenwarte II pump storage station: A controllable seal made of geosynthetics

More than 1,000m² sealed per day at the Hohenwarte II pump storage station: A controllable seal made of geosynthetics After more than 50 years of pump storage operation and numerous changes to the site’s inlets and outlets, the dam of the Hohenwarte II production facility near Saalfeld/Thuringia began to exhibit high rates of [...]

Landfill liner utilizes efficient geotextile solution instead of gravel

NAUE enables more economical and more efficient construction in Galați county (Romania) Conventional landfill lining systems require thick gravel-soil layers. Problems occur when the appropriate material is not available in the area, as is the case in Galaţi, in eastern Romania. Modern geotextile liner systems are more than just another alternative: They are [...]

Quality assurance and scour protection at the Amrumbank West offshore wind farm
