  • Designing A Better Alternative for Post-Closure Care

    After a landfill has reached the end of its service phase, federal law requires owners to install a final soil cover and maintain it over the next 30 years. This is the traditional strategy that most landfill owners employ and represents a significant cost of business. When all the layers are tallied together, the capping and post-closure period can cost up to $400,000 for a small, 100-acre ...

  • Optimization of leachate treatment using persulfate/H2O2 based advanced oxidation process: case study: Deir El-Balah Landfill Site, Gaza Strip, Palestine

    The objective of this study was to investigate the performance of employing H2O2 reagent in persulfate activation to treat stabilized landfill leachate. A central composite design (CCD) with response surface methodology (RSM) was applied to evaluate the relationships between operating variables, such as persulfate and H2O2 dosages, pH, and reaction time, to identify ...

  • Closure Options for Impoundments and Landfills

    In Kentucky, a county board votes to shut down a landfill that had long been the source of odor complaints from nearby residents. In Hawaii, residents push a city council to expedite a delayed landfill closure. Outside Beirut, Lebanon, protesters try to block trucks entering a landfill they say should have been closed a week earlier. These events, while certainly newsworthy, obscure the fact that ...

  • 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 ...

  • Landfill Leachate Sources and Treatment Options

    What is leachate? In a lab, it is any liquid that extracts solids as it passes through matter. In a landfill, it is the water that enters the facility in a number of ways, passes through waste material on contact, contains a wide range of constituents, and must be addressed with a proper operations plan. Leachate treatment options and mitigation are one of the greatest costs for landfill ...

  • Glenmore Landfill’s life expectancy increased for 12-15 years in Canada

    Ineffective compaction along with extensive use of cover soil are lowering the life expectencies of landfills. Aiming for better compaction is the easiest way to add more operation years for continuing revenues. For increasing the compaction efficiency, the city of Kelowna in Canada purchased a TANA E520 landfill compactor to Glenmore Landfill.  According to Ken Muller, the Solid Waste ...

  • Arizona Landfill Case Study (C3 Technology)

    Between 1979 and 1980, industrial and hazardous wastes were disposed of at the Site in a series of unlined pits, each of which was used for a particular type of waste disposal. It is reported based on evaluations of manifests that approximately 3.4 million gallons of hazardous liquid wastes and between 3,700 and 4,100 tons of solid wastes were disposed of in the pits at the Site. Of particular ...
