A study was undertaken to determine the long-term effects of codisposal of industrial waste (IW) and municipal solid waste (MSW) under controlled, simulated landfill conditions. Three IW's (treated or untreated by solidification) were disposed with MSW in nine specially designed test cells at an approximate volume ratio of 1:4. The sealed test cells were leached with distilled water at a rate of 1.27 cm per week. Leachate was collected anaerobically and analyzed for 28 parameters monthly or quarterly over a 4-year period. The three IW's were an electroplating waste (EPW), a chlorine production brine (CPB), and a glass-electronics etching sludge (GES). Two processes were used for solidification of the wastes: Process A added cement plus a patented ingredient to waste, and Process B mixed waste with lime and flyash.
