Contents Notes
"This project presents a retrospective evaluation of a 10-year study on the codisposal of municipal solid waste (MSW) with selected wastes in 19 simulated landfill cells. The objective of the study was to determine the effects of additions of water, sewage sludge, buffer and industrial wastes on the progress of MSW stabilization by evaluation of leachate and gas characteristics with time. Differences between the results from most of the landfill cells were influenced by repeated operational exposure to air during leachate removal and moisture addition. However, those cells which were operated in a fashion most conducive to anaerobic methanogenesis eventually produced the highest quantities of gas and the least contaminated leachate. The overall results provide a basis for recommendations on future studies as well as design and operational strategies to maximize waste stabilization at landfill disposal sites."
