Creating Durable Concrete Floors for Your Solid Waste Facility
Kansas City Convention Center - Room 2101

Transfer Station tipping floors, digester processing areas and material recovery facilities eventually all have concrete floor problems that slow productivity. Deterioration comes from bucket loaders and chemical attack from organics and recyclables. Every tipping floor at Transfer Stations and Material Recovery Facilities and every processing floor at an anaerobic digester eventually wears out. This presentation discusses how to make those floors last longer and the options when they need to be repaired. It covers concrete mix design considerations for full depth construction as well as the pros and cons of high-performance toppings. Owners and managers tasked with keeping their facility running smoothly and efficiently should be interested in this presentation.
