The system fully automates the AC application process by deploying degradable film over compacted refuse while distributing ballast in windrows to prevent film displacement. The deployer attaches easily to the blade of a dozer or compactor (prime mover) or can be towed by the prime mover with EPI's deployer support unit (DSU). The operator controls the functions of the deployer electronically by remote control. On average, the system can deploy and ballast approximately 10,000ft.² (929m²) of degradable film in approximately 30 minutes.
The cover is safe, effective, and easily deployed. Specifically designed to meet the mandatory requirements for daily and intermediate cover, it has good tear and puncture resistance, and elongation characteristics. Film degradation is initiated over a wide range of temperatures and once degradation starts, the process continues even in arctic temperatures. Because EC is photo/chemically/thermally degradable at controllable rates, it allows leachate and methane to migrate freely within the landfill, to enhance the decomposition of refuse.
