In a study designed to determine the current composition of municipal solid waste (MSW) leachate and its chemical resistance with flexible membrane liners (FMLs), the literature was surveyed and limited experiments on absorption of organics by FMLs were done. The object of the survey and study was to assess how well EPA Method 9090 can evaluate the resistance of FMLs with MSW leachate. It should be noted that EPA Method 9090 was originally developed for evaluating the chemical resistance of FMLs with hazardous waste leachate. At present, it is questionable whether Method 9090 yields realistic results for judging this resistance. The Method may yield misleading results because of the instability of the MSW leachate and the low concentrations of leachate organics presently reported.
