White Papers

Real world Savings example from using an ADC (with hard numbers)
This white paper is about saving space in landfills.  It is not your typical explanation of the difference between the space soils take up as opposed to today’s alternative daily cover materials.  This is an actual report about the experience of the Blue Haze Landfill in the United Kingdom, managed by a Steve West, a Veolia Environmental manager. 
Seeding with ConCover and ProGuard Products
This white paper goes in depth on comparing the operational savings advantage that you get from using a ConCover and ProGuard base when seeding. Especially in extreme environments
How to determine and monitor your ROI
Choosing the right piece of equipment is critical if you want to maximize the return on your investment. This white paper explores why NWC’s equipment consistently give our customers the best ROI
Choosing the Right CAPS Machine
This white paper goes in depth on choosing the right machine for doing your cover spraying. It details the cost and compares the EL Series to other machines to maximize your ROI
Learning to Identify Odors
It’s important to have a team with the experience and know how to identify the root cause of your odor problems. This document helps you get started down the road to a solution by giving you references to identify smells.
All ADC’s are NOT the Same!
A In depth Guide that walks you through how to properly compare ADC’s. What to look at, How to determine costs, Restrictions, Shipping Costs, Labor cost differences and many many more tips for when your shopping for an ADC.

Studies & Tests

Risk Analysis: Using Leachate with your Cover
A package of  documents focused on using leachate as the medium to mix your cover. Includes a risk analysis, application best practices, post application practices, paint filter test results and several other documents explaining the benefits and risks.
ConCover: VOC Suppression Study
A Summary of laboratory analysis performed on the ConCover Material. The objective of the study was to compare the vapor suppression capabilities of the ConCover Material vs. Soil. The study was performed by Hull & Associates
ConCover: Water Permeation Study
A Environmental Impact Report on the water permeation of NWC’s ConCover line of products. The tests were conducted at by the environmental engineering firm  of Hull and Associates.
Water Run off Quality Test
The implementation of a storm water run-off management program is required by US regulatory agencies to permit and operate a landfill facility. This study Shows the Effectiveness of NWC’s Cover Materials exceeded the standards set forth by the EPA
ConCover/ProGuard: Controlling Leachate Recirculation Study
Bench scale experiments were completed to evaluate the performance of NWC’s daily cover. The experiment tested properties of the materials including effects on surface water run-off quality, Vapor suppression, odor control, strength, and landfill stabilization 
ConCover/ProGuard: Flamability Test
Solid waste to be disposed of in a landfill is required to be characterized as non-hazardous and must not exhibit the following characteristics; ignitability, reactivity, corrosivity or toxicity. This report show the results of ConCovers Flamability Tests.
ConCover/ProGuard: Heavy Metal Absorbtion Study
A comparative study done by the University of Michigan on the ability of NWC’s ADC’s to absorb heavy metals using neutron activation analysis. ConCover was the most effective heavy metal remover of the 8 tested.
Landfill Stabilization Study
This was a in depth study done by a Japanese firm on the impact of ConCover on Landfill Stabilization. They found that ConCover and its variations had an extremely positive impact on the stabilization of the landfill in the study.
Analysis: Improving Water Resistance Properties by using HydraGuard
This study demonstrates the effectiveness and the expanded applications of NWC’s Cover materials by adding HydraGuard to the mix. HydraGuard allows cover materials to be exposed long-term to water and even be immersed in it. This Study shows the results of these tests

Competitive Analysis

Competitive Analysis: Odor Major
County landfill personnel conducted a pilot study using 5 of the leading odor control products to determine if they could improve the effectiveness of their on going odor control program. In this study they compared Odor Major to the leading brands.
Competitive Analysis: Odor Ranger
County landfill personnel conducted a pilot study using 5 of the leading odor control products to determine if they could improve the effectiveness of their on going odor control program.  In this study they compared Odor Ranger to the leading brands.
Competitive Analysis: Posi-shell vs. NWC
A in-depth analysis using real bid numbers comparing Posi-shell vs New Waste Concepts. This document doesn’t reflect the savings our customer receive when using ProGuard SB2 and or combining it with latex paint.
Competitive Analysis: ProGuard vs. Tarps
Learn why ProGuard and the ProGuard SB2 daily cover is the only competitive Alternate Daily Cover when it comes to price per square foot. Beating even traditionally low square foot cost of Tarps.
Competitive Analysis: NWC vs Clay based Asphaltic Systems
We believe that our ProGuard line of products will provide the lowest lifecycle and application cost of any ADC on the market. This documents compares the price of ProGuard SB to Clay based Asphaltic Systems
