The use of EVOH as a geomembrane is new and it now allows designers and regulators the option to better contain both the liquid and gas phased hazardous waste on environmental sites. With the addition of EVOH, the Absolute Barrier® line of geomembranes can now protect against VOCs, methane, nauseous odors, and even Radon. Even better, the installation procedures for this special lining system are the same as common PE liners. With the use of the Absolute Barrier® geomembrane system, the designers and owners of the 360 Degree Recycling facility were able to provide a best available practice (BAP) methodology. The decision to use Absolute Barrier® not only ensured greater environmental performance, but better long-term site economics related to environmental responsibilities. They mitigated future groundwater concerns, conserved water resources, and reduced storm water runoff fees. And they did so by implementing an easy containment strategy for both liquid and gas phased wastes with the Absolute Barrier system.
