MSW LANDFILL COLL CARDÚS AT VACARISSES (SPAIN, 2016)

Closure geometry modification of sanitary landfill of Coll Cardus at Vacarisses (Valles Occidental, Spain), which has been active and controlled since 1985.

Our experience has allowed a detailed simulation of the landfill behavior and the validation of a new final geometry.

PRO GEO experience has helped our clients with the following aspects:

    • Development of a 3D geomechanical model of the original and final geometry of the landfill.
    • Evaluation of long-term settlements due to waste materials secondary consolidation phenomena.
    • Evaluation of the geotechnical global stability.

Our experience has allowed a detailed simulation of the landfill behavior and the validation of a new final geometry.
