Abstract

Landfill technology must adapt to the changing demands of policy makers and waste regulators if it is to continue to deliver environmentally sound and efficient waste disposal. Among the more-significant requirements that may fall to landfill designers is for the pretreatment of municipal solid waste and that the fill will rapidly stabilise. This paper reports on the key relationship between in-situ density and the hydraulic characteristics of pretreated municipal solid waste. The paper also considers the practical significance of the research in relation to current UK landfill practice, and examines the viability of the flushing bioreactor.
