Coal ash is a waste product of coal-fired power plants that contains arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury among other toxins. When stored improperly in unlined landfills, coal ash can cause pollution by leaching, or draining, heavy metals into nearby waterways. Many of these metals may cause significant health risks for people exposed through drinking water or through recreation in contaminated areas. Like many power plants that use heat to make electricity, coal plants are often built near rivers to provide easy access to water for cooling.
Right now, more and more concerns are raised toward the reasonable treatment to coal ash in these coal thermal power stations. Geosynthetic is a very cost-effective and environmental-friendly Material solution for the lined pond/dam for coal ash. YINGFAN HDPE/LLDPE Geomembrane and bentonite GCL can provide safe, effective, cost- Effective, superior coal ash resistance as the bottom liner or cap liner in waste landfill pond or dam.
YINGFAN drainage geocomposite can provide sufficient in-plane lateral flow capacity by its part of high engineered geonet and excellent long-term hydraulic performance and creep resistance to ensure that the leachate collection system will continue working throughout the project’s lifespan.
YINGFAN plastic geogrids are reinforcement and stabilization products Manufactured from HDPE or PP resin. They prevent slope failure and increase stability in coal ash impoundment application where the soil is too weak to support heavy loads
