Since the beginning of the 1980s waste disposal has become a particularly sensitive issue. This has led to the development of new legislations in the European Community and internationally which resulted in an array of regulations concerning landfill liner design, This paper comments on different 'engineered' containment methods with particular reference to landfill liner design. Suggestions based on the review of the different methodologies are given and a case study is presented.
