Landfills – Erosion control

Capping made by bringing in terrain needs, at least until the first phase of complete vegetation is reached, erosion control and protection, especially from heavy rainfall.
The washout effect on the surface tends to remove particles of earth creating typical erosion shapes and accumulations of materials which over a period of time cause a reduction of the thickness of the capping.
The use of natural biomats such as Ecovernet or Ecovermat, or a geosynthetic ECM (erosion control mat) from the Kmat family protect the terrain from erosion giving vegetation time to root and develop a root system thus giving additional support to the terrain.
