Abstract : This report presents the results of a literature search and state-of-the-art survey of liner materials utilized in impoundments sites for the containment of seven general types of industrial wastes. The objectives of the study were to assemble the available information concerning the chemical and physical properties, cost, and field performance data of various liner materials. The data obtained from the literature search were supplemented with information obtained from various liner manufacturers, fabricators, suppliers, installers, consultants, and trade association representatives. In addition, the report contains an engineering analysis of the chemical compatibility of the liner materials with the industrial wastes of interest. From this analysis, preliminary recommendations are made concerning the suitability of the liner materials for containing the specified industrial wastes.
