GEOSYNTHETIC CLAY LINER (GCL)

Geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) are factory manufactured hydraulic barriers to water, leachate, or other liquids and sometimes gases upon proper hydration. It consists of a layer of bentonite or other very low-permeability material supported by geotextiles and/or geomembranes, mechanically held together by needling punching to increase the internal shear resistance.

As such, they are used as replacements for either compacted clay liners or geomembranes, or they are used in a composite manner to augment the more traditional liner materials.

Geosynthetic Clay Liner Applications

Geosynthetic clay liners can be utilized as:

  • Barriers in landfill fills, between the deposited waste and the sub-surface soil & groundwater.
  • Landfill capping
  • Mining
  • Canal and river lining
  • Coal ash disposal facilities
