Realisation of Kapiteltal landfill
The example of the Kapiteltal landfill shows that the pp.landfill model successfully combines municipal interests with ecological and economic advantages. This approach was implemented together with Zentrale Abfallwirtschaft Kaiserslautern (ZAK) as part of the "new on old" landfill expansion.
Landfill construction materials
For the entire construction project at the Kapiteltal landfill site, more than 2 million tonnes of different secondary aggregates are required.
Landfill Directive for safe waste disposal
The Landfill Directive regulates the construction, operation, closure and aftercare of landfills in a uniform and strict manner throughout Germany. In particular, the paragraphs on conditions for landfilling, acceptance procedures, closure and aftercare show how high the safety requirements for today's landfills are and that new developments are constantly being incorporated on the basis of the "state-of-the-art" principle.
The importance of landfills
Some types of waste, especially mineral waste, remain unsuitable for recycling, as it is not always possible to eliminate all relevant pollutants. In this case, the only alternative course of action is to discharge these substances from the material cycle in the form of a deposit at a landfill site. Consequently, landfill operators are especially responsible for environmental and resource protection and thus for securing the future of a modern society. The legal framework for dealing with waste forms the basis of all these activities.
