How does it work?

Attapulgite is a natural clay which has adsorptive properties, and provides an efficient and cost-effective method for creating an impermeable liner for landfills.

Landfill leachate has serious environmental impacts due to the complexity and diversity of its pollutants. Attapulgite has been found to have good chemical compatibility with organic and inorganic contaminants.
