Municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal is an ever-increasing problem in many parts of the world, especially in developing countries. To date, landfilling is still the preferred option for the disposal and management of MSW due to its low-cost operation. While this solution is advantageous from a cost perspective, it introduces a high level of potential pollutants which can be detrimental to the local environment.
Control and Treatment of Landfill Leachate for Sanitary Waste Disposal presents research-based insights and solutions for the proper management and treatment of landfill leachate. Highlighting relevant topics on emerging technologies and treatment innovations for minimizing the environmental hazards of waste disposal, this innovative publication contributes to filling in many of the gaps that exist in the current literature available on leachate treatment. Waste authorities, solid waste management companies, landfill operators, legislators, environmentalists, graduate students, and researchers will find this publication beneficial to their professional and academic interests in the area of waste treatment and management.
Reviews and Testimonials
Environmental engineers primarily from Malaysia share some basic rules in municipal solid waste management, particularly the importance of waste disposal and treatment of leachate. The topics include sustainable waste treatments and facility siting concerns, items of consideration in the design of a Malaysian landfill, leachate pollution and impact on the environment, the performance and limitation of physical treatment technologies for landfill leachate, the occurrence and treatment of micropollutants in landfill leachate, and case studies of leachate treatment in selected European and Asian countries.
