Holcim Cement Landfill: AGRU America & WatershedGeo

Holcim Cement Landfill

The Holcim Cement – CKD Landfill is a 46-acre final closure cover system project located in Catskill, NY. The project is an unlined Cement Kiln Dust (CKD) inactive industrial landfill project. The site is the first application in the state of New York to use ClosureTurf® as an EPA Subtitle D compliant landfill closure system.

The Holcim Catskill plant is no longer an active facility. Reducing and managing long-term environmental impacts and long-term maintenance were the reasons ClosureTurf® was selected. The ClosureTurf® system was designed specifically to reduce infiltration to manage high PH impacts to the Hudson River, control soil erosion, reduce post-closure maintenance costs and increase slope integrity. The CKD landfill does not generate landfill gas (LFG) but as a precautionary measure to assist in any potential gas generation, the project incorporated WatershedGeo’s patented surficial gas system and gas vents.
