Carbon Footprint of Geomembrane HDPE vs Traditional Waterproofing Barrier

Lowering the Carbon Footprint is one of the strongest advantages by using HDPE geomembrane instead of traditional way for waterproofing as compacted clays.
A HDPE liner 1.5 mm could give similar watertight as 0,60 m compacted of high quality and homogeneous clay with lower permeability than 1 x 10-11 m/sec (ASTM D 5887). Based on several scientist survey, considering all resources and energy to become either products as a waterproofing barrier, the geosynthetics (geomembrane HDPE 1.5 mm) takes up lower carbon dioxide equivalent, therefore it is more environmentally friendly solution.
