The experimental research project studied various factors in the compatibility of flexible membrane liners (FMLs) with waste liquids and other hazardous substances that may be encountered in waste storage and disposal facilities. This work included: (1) Swelling of FMLs and other FML-related compositions in organics, and calculation of the solubility parameters of these compositions; (2) Distributions of organics between aqueous solutions, such as leachates, and FMLs; and, (3) Variables in EPA Method 9090 compatibility testing of FMLs and waste liquids.
