About this product
- DescriptionSolid waste management is a global concern, and landfilling remains the predominant management method in most areas of the world. This book provides a comprehensive view of state-of-the-art methods to manage landfills more sustainably, drawing upon more than two decades of research, design, and operational experiences at operating sites across the world. Sustainable landfills implement one or multiple techlogies to control and enhance the degradation of waste materials to realize a multitude of potential benefits during or shortly after the landfill's operating phase. This book presents detailed approaches in the development, design, operation, and monitoring of sustainable landfills. Case studies showcasing the benefits and challenges of sustainable landfill techlogies are also provided to give the reader additional context. The intent of the book is to serve as a reference guide for regulatory personnel, a practical tool for designers and engineers to build on for site-specific applications of sustainable landfill techlogies, and a comprehensive resource for researchers who are continuing to explore new and better ways to more sustainably manage waste materials.
