INTRODUCTION

Manufactured synthetic lining products have allowed for efficient design and construction of containment structures such as ponds, lagoons, landfills, tanks and secondary spill containment facilities, including vapor management systems. Because of the wide variety of project conditions and materials being contained and with so many liner types to choose from, the design and selection of the appropriate lining materials can be a complex task.

With nearly three decades of experience in geomembrane containment technology, Nilex offers geomembrane liner installation, design assistance, fabrication and construction services for containment applications. The Nilex containment technology process involves compatibility testing and the consideration of facility design and climatic factors.

CONTAINMENT APPLICATIONS

Primary containment applications, such as landfills or tailings ponds, require geomembranes to prevent the leaching of materials into the surrounding soil and groundwater. Nilex geomembrane technology offers a wide range of materials for the containment of a variety of liquids, solids and waste...

Geomembrane covers are generally used to protect materials from water infiltration and to prevent loss of material from erosion by wind or water. Additionally, covers can provide odor control. Short-term cover applications include soil remediation projects, temporary stock pile covers and...

The storage of industrial liquids in tanks, drums or other containers usually requires the construction of a secondary containment facility that provides protection against potential leaks or breaches. Nilex offers several options for long-term or temporary secondary spill containment materials...

Nilex’s Soil Gas Barrier Systems use geomembranes to inhibit the seepage of gases, such as radon and methane from one area to another. These systems can be installed under or around concrete foundations and floors to prevent the build-up of dangerous gases in building structures, eliminating...
