Evaluation of Stability Parameters for Landfills
(Virginia Tech, 2002-08-02)
There are more than three thousand landfills in the United States, in which approximately 55% (1998, U. S. EPA 1999) of the MSW generated in the US is buried. The majority of the landfills are conventional, but in the ...
Analytical Methods of Testing Solid Waste and Leachate to Determine Landfill Stability and Landfill Biodegradation Enhancement
(Virginia Tech, 2009-09-10)
This was a study undertaken to investigate municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill stability parameters and landfill leachate properties to determine how solid waste and leachate characteristics can be used to describe ...
Effect of plastics on the lignin results for MSW and the fate of lignin in laboratory solid waste reactors
(Virginia Tech, 2004-10-18)
<p> Cellulose to lignin ratio is one of the widely used indicators of degree of landfill stabilization. This ratio shows the amount of carbohydrate or cellulose consumed by anaerobes compared to relatively inert lignin. ...
Solid Waste Biodegradation Enhancements and the Evaluation of Analytical Methods Used to Predict Waste Stability
(Virginia Tech, 2002-05-02)
Conventional landfills are built to dispose of the increasing amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated each year. A relatively new type of landfill, called a bioreactor landfill, is designed to optimize the ...
