Abstract

A landfill site is a complex environment characterized by many interacting physical, chemical and biological processes. The degradation process of municipal solid waste (MSW) in a landfill is a longterm event. During MSW degradation, landfill gases are generated, the landfill surface settles and leachate concentrations are slowly and gradually attenuated. Leachate concentrations may therefore exceed permissible levels over a long period of time. Hence, leachate is one of the most important issues in the management of a landfill.
