The Greenacquirers are here to make landfills a more organized and efficient way to dispose trash. Our job is to redesign the structure of landfills to benefit our environment. We studied and research all the details to know about landfills, making us experts on all things landfills. During our research process we found our problem that we felt it was our duty to fix. After that we found our project and went straight to work!
As a group we decided that our project was going to be on the construction of landfills. Specifically, we are focused on leachate contained in landfills that will eventually run into our waterways. The structure of landfills does not efficiently dispose or decrease the amount of leachate, but instead the leachate runs freely without anything in its path. Our duty is to decrease the amount of leachate!
Our solution to help decrease leachate is to create a filter for leachate and redesign new and upcoming landfills.
The filter will be used to:
The added layer will be used to:
Our overlying plan is to:
Our solution is behavioral and physical changes that we plan to make
