Solid waste disposal-especially after the Love Canal incident-has become the focus of public awareness and concern for pollution.

This book provides a synthesis of existing knowledge on solid waste landfilling-with a focus on solving problems with landfill gas, managing leachate, and implementing environmentally secure operating procedures.

It explores the fundamentals of solid waste decomposition, and considers how these influence landfill design, operational features, and improvements in overall site performance.

Covers social, economic and technical factors associated with solid waste landfilling.

Considers all environmental applications- especially water quality and the treatment of landfill generated gas.

Presents methodologies for predicting landfill gas and leachate production.

For engineers, hydrogeologists, and urban planners involved in the design and operation of landfills.
