Introducing – MEGA-Drain™ by Hallaton

MEGA-Drain™ – the “Moisture Eliminating Gravity Apparatus!”

We are excited to announce the launch of MEGA-Drain™ by Hallaton!  Bringing our 30 years of geosynthetic installation experience, we have partnered with MEGA-Drain Corporation to offer their press-less, dry-stack tailings and water management system to our home in the Chesapeake Bay watershed and beyond as your exclusive East Coast installation experts.

MEGA-Drain™ is the first “smart” drainage solution optimally engineered to dry stockpiled ore, recover decant, hold, and treat decant, and allow for dry-stacked tailings management without mechanical filter presses. Its multi-layered design leverages airflow, negative air pressure, and gravity to enable passive drainage, storing water underground in a non-reactive vault. With reduced costs, complexity, waste, and footprint requirements compared to traditional decanting methods, we believe the MEGA-Drain™ system will be the mining industry’s “best practice,” and we are honored to play a role in the bright future of responsible mining material processing, and stockpiling.


  • Tailings stream of Underflow / Overflow from cyclone discharge – recover water at the end stage of processing
  • Production stockpiles from Radial Stackers / Cyclones / Trippers / Tunnels & Reclaimers
  • Water Storage–lined impoundments with floating covers lasting 30 years!

Why MEGA-Drain™ ?

The MEGA-Drain™ system is scalable, modular, simply installed, and rapidly constructed. It reduces a project’s total requirements for water, does not require filter presses or the facilities to house them, and removes more moisture faster than filter-press-based solutions.

  • Reduce stockpiled material moisture contents sub 5% to low single digits rapidly.
  • Eliminate material rehandling.
  • Reduce fuel consumption and carbon footprint.
  • Reduce plant upset conditions with consistent low moisture feed stock.
  • Reduce OPEX with discernable and accurate CAPEX for asset.
  • Increase production 20 -35%.
  • Increase EBITDA with measurable ROI.
  • Increase plant/production options by increasing water reserves.
  • Increase market capitalization.

Give us a call to learn how MEGA-Drain™ can help you turn water from a LIABILITY into an ASSET!

Hallaton Environmental Linings and Core Development Group Partner to Create Solar Programs on Closed Landfills

Solar on Landfills Hallaton Environmental Linings Core Development Group

SPARKS, MD, February 15, 2022 –
Solar on landfills is booming due to renewable energy incentives and the benefits of repurposing unusable land to generate clean energy. As solar companies continue to research viable land for solar development, closed landfills present a unique opportunity to reuse degraded land versus more valuable resources such as farmland. To address the specific needs of landfill owners, Hallaton Environmental Linings is partnering with Core Development Group to help bring more landfill-to-solar projects to life. Continue reading

EPA Denies Several CCR Disposal Extensions

CCR Disposal Ruling

Since the Coal Combustion Residuals Disposal Rule was filed in 2015 to address the public health and safety risks of improper coal ash disposal, coal-fired power plants have been under tremendous scrutiny to prove their compliance with current regulations or demonstrate immediate plans to become so. The ruling requires composite liner systems to contain CCR waste, better monitoring of groundwater, structural stability requirements, and proper closure and post-closure safety measures.
