  • An expert system on site selection of sanitary landfill

    It is desirable to encapsulate heuristic and empirical knowledge including hydrological and bio-geochemical considerations into the selection process of a potential landfill site. This paper delineates a prototype expert system, which has been developed using a commercially available microcomputer-based expert system shell VISUAL RULE STUDIO, for the selection of a landfill site. VISUAL RULE ...

  • Landfill siting using GIS, fuzzy logic and the Delphi method

    The focus of this paper is on the development of an evaluation methodology for landfill siting. The first part of the paper presents the methodology developed, utilising GIS technology for the analysis and visualisation of the geographic data, and fuzzy logic for the evaluation of the final results. The Delphi method is also utilised to determine the membership functions used in the fuzzy logic ...

  • Tramore landfill tank bund - civils works - case study

    Construction works on a reinforced concrete secondary tank bund around the existing leachate tank have been completed at Tramore Landfill Site for Waterford County Council. The tank bund consisted of 200mm thick reinforced concrete slab and walls poured around the existing tank to provide a secondary containment of leachate in the event of failure of the primary tanks. Works involved the ...

  • Veolia (Onyx) (UK) case study

    Onyx Landfill manages 18 landfill sites in the North and West Midlands on behalf of its parent waste disposal company to ensure compliance with licence conditions. Over the years the volume of monitoring data has increased steadily and an efficient method of inputting, collating and retrieving data soon became essential. After Monitor-LT was installed, Onyx Landfill found that the automatic input ...

  • 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 ...

  • CSDU Lapouyade landfill - Case Study

    The CSDU landfill site (Centre de Stockage des Déchets Ultimes) of Lapouvade is operated by SOVAL, a subsidiary of the CGEA ONYX group. The municipal solid waste for the landfill site comes from Bordeaux and the surrounding area. The two Type 3 containers from Jenbacher installed in 2004 use the biogas that is produced by methanogenesis of the rubbish on the landfill. The engines have a ...

  • 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 ...

  • Raffen landfill site, Cork, Ireland

    AFS were awarded a contract to design a gas and leachate collection system, and carry out a 10-week gas pumping trial to evaluate the levels of gas being generated from Raffen Landfill Site. From the pumping trial data, a 200m3/hr HT flare was designed, built and installed. A hydrovane compressor/receiver/dryer package was installed to operate ten pneumatic leachate extraction pumps. ...

  • Toxicological Evaluation of the Chemical Oxidation Methods for Landfill Stabilization

    Abstract : As the stabilization criteria for landfill sites, only chemical criteria for the leachate discharges from the landfill sites have been used in Japan and many other countries. Recently, chemical oxidation has been developed as a method for the early-stabilization of landfills. However, by-products that are difficult to detect by chemical analysis can be produced by this ...

  • Ontario Landfill Site - Case Study

    A Texas based company with waste management sites around North America have installed electrical generation plants at various locations that use methane collected from the waste. The daily operation of these sites include the management of the leachate, a liquid waste by-product of decomposition, and the collection of gas for electricity production. This is typically carried out at multiple wells ...

  • TCE at Department of Defense Landfill Site

    PROJECT BACKGROUND Subsurface investigations at this 40-acre Northern California Department of Defense (DOD) landfill site revealed elevated levels of TCE in site soils and groundwater. This discovery was made through routine site monitoring, as regulated by the state of California solid waste landfill regulations. Regulators required site cleanup to reduce chlorinated hydrocarbon concentrations ...

  • Monitoring leachate composition at a municipal landfill site in New Delhi, India

    Most of the landfills in developing countries do not have any liner at the base, or a drainage layer or a proper top cover, which results in the potential problem of groundwater/surface water contamination due to the leachate. Hence, to decide whether the leachate is to be collected and treated, or may be allowed to discharge into the adjoining soil or public sewer or surface waterbody, it is ...

  • Assessment of landfill gas and methane emission at Keru landfill site, Jodhpur (India)

    Jodhpur is densely populated and urbanised city of Rajasthan state. The population of the city is considerably increased in past few decades due to rapid urbanisation and industrialisation within the city. Presently inhabitants of Jodhpur generate about 392 t/d of MSW. MSW management has remained one of the most neglected areas of the municipal systems. About 70–80% of generated MSW is collected ...

  • Optimal allocation of landfill disposal site: a fuzzy multi-criteria approach

    Due to rapid population growth and economic development, there has been a significant increase in municipal solid waste (MSW) generation in India. The estimated solid waste generation in India ranges from 100g per capita per day in small towns, 300-400g per caipta per day in medium cities and about 500g per capita per day in large cities. As per the available trend the amount of waste generated ...
