Liquid balance monitoring inside conventional, Retrofit, and bio-reactor landfill cells

WASTE MANAGEMENT, 33(10), 2006–2014.

author keywords: Landfill; Bioreactor; Leachate; Recirculation; Liquid balance
MeSH headings : Biodegradation, Environmental; Bioreactors; Kentucky; Refuse Disposal / instrumentation; Solid Waste / analysis; Waste Disposal Facilities; Water / analysis; Water Pollutants, Chemical
TL;DR: The increase in net liquid volume in the As-Built cells indicates that the 37% (average) measured settlement strain in these cells cannot be due to consolidation as the waste mass did not lose any moisture but rather suggests that settlement was attributable to lubrication of waste particle contacts, softening of flexible porous materials, and additional biological degradation.

Performance of North American Bioreactor Landfills. I: Leachate Hydrology and Waste Settlement

Bareither, C. A., Benson, C. H., Barlaz, M. A., Edil, T. B., & Tolaymat, T. M. (2010, August). JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING-ASCE, Vol. 136, pp. 824–838.

author keywords: Landfills; Bioreactor; Solid waste; Liners; Leachate; Hydrology; Settlement
TL;DR: An assessment of state-of-the-practice at five full-scale North American landfills operating as bioreactors is presented, finding that leakage rates from liners at bioreactor landfilling, including alternative liner designs employing geosynthetic clay liners, are comparable to leakage Rates from conventional landfill.

Performance of North American Bioreactor Landfills. II: Chemical and Biological Characteristics

Barlaz, M. A., Bareither, C. A., Hossain, A., Saquing, J., Mezzari, I., Benson, C. H., … Yazdani, R. (2010, August). JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING, Vol. 136, pp. 839–853.

author keywords: Landfills; Bioreactor; Solid waste; Leachate quality; Methane
TL;DR: While the data indicate that gas collection increases at bioreactor landfills, a general relationship between decay rate and moisture added or wet weight water content could not be identified and trends in pH and BOD:COD in theBioreactor leachates were consistent with the impacts of enhanced biological activity.

TL;DR: Results suggest that significant fractions of the spiked surrogates were strongly attached to SBD, and these results suggest that the suitability of landfills for the disposal of building decontamination residue (BDR) following a bioterrorist attack on a building is evaluated.

JOURNAL OF THE AIR & WASTE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION, 60(4), 460–470.

By: T. Abichou*, J. Clark*, S. Tan*, J. Chanton*, G. Hater, R. Green, D. Goldsmith, M. Barlaz n, N. Swan*

MeSH headings : Air Pollution / analysis; Computer Simulation; Gases / analysis; Models, Chemical; Uncertainty; Waste Management; Wind
TL;DR: Estimates of the area contributing to flux (ACF) to be used in conjunction with OTM-10 procedures are provided and the estimate is a function of the atmospheric stability class and has an uncertainty of 10–30%. (via Semantic Scholar)
