Steel sheet piles are highly valued for the containment of waste or polluted material. They can be installed as an impervious wall preventing the migration of pollutants in soil.Regarding the confinement of waste, steel sheet piles are generally installed as vertical walls. Its watertightness can be improved either by applying a sealing product in the interlocks or whenever possible, by welding the interlocks after installation.
Steel sheet piles are highly resistant to the potentially aggressive environment present in waste disposals.
Steel sheet piles can also be used to create a new landfill (see case study “Redevelopment of a landfill“) or to renovate the walls of a former landfill (see case study “Tar waste disposal“).
