Dodge-Regupol, Lancaster, PA, was awarded a $100,000 grant from Pennsylvania's environmental technology research and development fund that will be used to help finance a field test of Regupol, a product made from recycled rubber, for potential use in landfills. Regupol will be tested as a protective cushion layer for the geomembrane in a typical landfill composite liner system. The test will be conducted at the Frey Farm land fill in Lancaster County, PA, in cooperation with the county's Solid Waste Management Authority. Other participants in the test are J&L Engineering, Canonsburg, PA, the Geosynthetic Research Institute at Drexel University, and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources. National Seal, Aurora, IL, will install the liner system.
