ClosureTurf® is an environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing engineered turf final cover system designed for performance well beyond the post-closure maintenance period. Over a period of several years and after many trials under extreme conditions, we developed the optimal technology found in ClosureTurf®. It has been extensively tested in independent laboratories and real-world applications for performance and durability. The system is engineered to exceed EPA’s Subtitle D cover system requirements. Also, it eliminates the challenges and common failure modes of traditional vegetative cover systems such as erosion and drainage control, veneer slope stability, and post-closure maintenance.
ClosureTurf® is manufactured in partnership with:
Management Benefits & Cost Savings
Rapid, low-impact, cost-effective construction.
Incremental closure lowers leachate production and controls gas collection sooner.
No regular maintenance like irrigation, fertilizing, seeding or mowing.
Significantly lowers upfront and repair costs.
Durable system construction designed to safely convey internal gas pressures, reduce unwanted releases and avoid slope stability issues.
Solar projects on ClosureTurf® landfills reduce site prep and maintenance costs. Since there is no erosion, systems can be designed more densely than on conventional vegetative landfill caps.
2. Land preservation
Siting solar projects on ClosureTurf® diverts development from green space. Momentum is building across the country from diverse stakeholder groups to prioritize landfill solar over greenfield development.
3. Carbon footprint
ClosureTurf® does not require the use of borrow soil, which destroys viable habitat at its original location and generates significant carbon emissions during transportation.
4. Gas containment
ClosureTurf® offers superior landfill gas management. The structured geomembrane reduces oxygen in the system, resulting in higher quality methane for flaring or energy generation.
