A synopsis of the current state of bioreactor landfill practice and leachate recirculation that highlights how prior research and implementation of that research has advanced the bioreactor landfill concept. A history of the bioreactor landfill concept is also discussed.
Upon completion of this course, the attendee will be able to:
- Discuss the benefits and obstacles of bioreactor landfill technology
- Define the elements of leachate hydrology & waste settlement
- Discuss the performance of various North American bioreactor landfills in terms of their leachate quality & gas production
