  • Solar energy landfill caps

    Things weren’t going well at the Erewhon Landfill. It was time to close the facility, and there was no soil left onsite for construction of the cap. Erewhon was a County facility, and the money available for 30 years of post-closure gas monitoring, groundwater sampling and reporting, erosion repairs and maintenance of a grass cover was sorely needed elsewhere. The landfill manager recalled ...

  • Landfill Liners Vary by Application

    It was in 1991 that the Environmental Protection Agency promulgated its Criteria for Municipal Waste Landfills that set location restrictions, design and operating standards, groundwater monitoring requirements, corrective actions, closure requirements, and more for landfills. It was these rules that mandated that landfills be lined on the sides and bottom before waste is deposited and capped on ...

  • Landfill sites – home to buried treasure!

    Recent studies have found that landfill sites are most certainly filled with huge volumes of valuable metals. According to a study carried out by Cranfield University, scientists analysed samples from up to 30 metres deep from four different landfill sites. Large objects where removed and the samples were analysed for the content of rare earth metals and other valuable metals. Results indicated ...

  • Groundwater Monitoring of a Solid Waste Landfill in Germany

    In Germany solid waste landfills are required to monitor the ground water on and around their premises and to regularly submit reports to the responsible environmental authority. It is the duty of the landfill operator to show that there is no strong negative effect on the ground water as it passes below the landfill. To be able to measure the impact of the landfill on the ground water quality, ...

  • Monitoring System for Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Covers

    Three test sections were constructed and instrumented to assess the hydrologic behavior of earthen final covers at two municipal solid waste landfills. A traditional design using a “resistive barrier” was used for two of the test sections, whereas an alternative design using a “capillary barrier” was used for the third test section. The test sections were built in two distinctly different ...

  • Study of colloidal content and associated heavy metals in landfill leachate: a case study of El-Akader landfill site: Jordan

    Landfill leachate samples were collected anaerobically at six locations at the El-Akader landfill site in North Jordan. The collected leachate samples were separated into size fractions with special attention to the distribution of colloids and associated heavy metals. The fraction sizes were 1.2 µm. The maximum concentrations of heavy metals in the analysed leachate samples were Cd 0.6 µg/l, Ni ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in leachates from municipal landfills

    The leachates from six municipal waste landfills, located in South-eastern Poland, were studied for the presence of major, Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) – PAHs, Polychlorinated Dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs)/Polychlorinated Dibenzofurans (PCDFs), Polychlorinated Dibenzothiophenes (PCDTs) and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). The measured concentrations varied with respect to the ...

  • Measurements of Methane Emissions and Surface Methane Oxidation at Landfills: WR1125

    Methane emissions from landfill were estimated to account for around 3% of the UK‟s total greenhouse gas emissions in 2009. The reported figure for methane emissions from landfill in the UK represents 41.5% of all UK methane emissions. The IPCC guidelines indicate that measurement of methane emissions is necessary to validate models and to provide confidence in country specific model ...

  • Remediation of MSW landfill leachate by permeable reactive barrier with vegetation

    This research was conducted to investigate in situ treatment of leachate by pilot-scale permeable reactive barrier (PRB) with vegetation. Two different types of PRB media, with and without the presence of ferric chloride sludge, for the removal of pollutants were examined. The composite media of PRB comprised a clay and sand mixture of 40:60%w/w (system 1) and a clay, ferric chloride ...

  • TOC Determination in Solid Samples using the Suspension Method

    The TOC content in solids plays an important role in the classification of soils, sludges and sediments. According to the German Ordinance on Environmentally Compatible Storage of Waste from Human Settlements, TOC in solid materials is one of the key parameters for the characterization of wastes as part of the acceptance control of landfills. This important control measure requires a ...
