  • Converting wet organic waste, black bag waste, as well as MRF residuals into solid recovered fuel (SRF) is now possible

    With China closing its doors to lower-grade recyclables, and with composting programs continuing to underperform, keeping this material out of landfill is becoming an increasing challenge. The largest problem has always been moisture content. What if you could turn all this waste (except for metals and inerts) into high-quality SRF without having to separate it, and without the need for ...

  • Formulation of a landfill pollution potential index to compare pollution potential of uncontrolled landfills

    Generally speaking, landfilling is one of the prominent methods of waste disposal around the globe, but some under-developed and developing countries still continue to practice uncontrolled open dumping of waste. These uncontrolled landfills pose a relatively high threat to the various elements of the environment in comparison with the conventional engineered landfills that are used in many ...

  • A laboratory study on stabilization criteria of semi-aerobic landfill

    The semi-aerobic landfill has been widely used as a sustainable landfill technology. However, the stabilization indicator system and stabilization criteria of semi-aerobic landfill have not been developed yet. In this study, the stabilization indicator system and stabilization criteria of semi-aerobic landfill were studied on the basis of simulation tests and a mathematical method. The results ...

  • The Behaviour of PVC in Landfill

    This study carries out an analysis of the behaviour of PVC waste in landfills. An estimation of the quantities of PVC waste landfilled annually is presented. The study provides a survey of existing literature on the behaviour of PVC in landfills, in particular the behaviour of additives present in PVC waste (heavy metals, phthalates). In addition, practical experiments have been carried out in ...

  • The impact of an environmental disamenity on land values: case of Kiteezi landfill in Uganda

    The discourse on waste management is increasingly becoming important especially in developing countries. Landfill use is one of the most preferred methods of waste management yet it has various negative effects on people's welfare and livelihoods. This study uses hedonic price model to quantify impacts of proximity to a landfill. It uses primary data on property characteristics and other factors ...

  • Potential and limitation of UAV for monitoring subsidence in municipal landfills

    Multitemporal topographic measurements are essential for monitoring municipal landfills for economic and security reasons. Accurate evaluation of the landfill volumes still to exploit and the extent of subsidence occurring in the closed plots are critical parameters in landfill management. A municipal landfill located in central Italy has been imaged by a UAV helicopter able to fly in full ...

  • Landfills: considering the alternative

    The economic side of landfill management isn’t easy. Essentially there is a “product” being sold— airspace. Revenue is generated through tipping fees charged per ton. The more garbage taken in, the more income earned. From that perspective, selling space is good. However, as more garbage is taken in, less space remains and the landfill’s lifespan decreases. ...

  • Influence of magnetic treatment on the improvement of landfill leachate treatment

    Magnetic treatment is an alternative simple approach by which landfill leachate treatment could be improved. The purpose of landfill leachate treatment is to remove the Suspended Solids, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD). Based on experiment by using circulation flowing system with a magnetic strength of 0.55 T, it was shown that the leachate quality could be ...

  • Challenges and chances for organic waste Management in Australia

    As in many other countries, waste management in Australia was seen as little more than providing adequate waste collection services and landfill disposal sites until recently. Waste was not seen as a problem, prompting waste generation rates per capita to reach a very high level. Understandably so, since a mere 18 million Australians occupy a vast land area with seemingly abundant space for ...
