The Ing. E. Mantovani construction company, Padua, chose Buzzi Unicem and its SOLIDUR, a ready-to-use product for the self-hardening of plastic mixtures, for the reclamation of the Vallone Moranzani landfill, which has been designated as a Site of National Interest within the municipal territory of Venice.
The project involves the construction of a new landfill plant for non-hazardous waste and stable non-reactive hazardous waste above three former brownfields. The disposal capacity of the new landfill will be over 2 million m3. The diaphragm wall work began in 2014 and will likely be completed by the end of April 2016. The impermeable plastic diaphragm wall is 80 cm thick, is anchored at variable depths and is made using the SOLIDUR 274 SPECIALE mixture, with a density of 1.20 g/cm3. It is composed of cementitious mineral binders, clay and bentonitic components and special mineral additions. Approximately 50 000 m3 of self-hardening plastic mix using 16 000 t of SOLIDUR 274 SPECIALE will be used to build the wall.
