Solid Waste Landfilling: Processes, Technology, and Environmental Impactsprovides interdisciplinary information on the concepts, processes, and various technologies for promoting stabilization and minimizing environmental impacts in landfills. The book starts with the methods of pre-treatment of waste, and then continues through long-term aftercare and remediation.

As the main challenges in waste management are the reduction and proper treatment of waste and the appropriate use of waste streams, the book satisfies the needs of a modern landfill, covering waste pre-treatment, in situ treatment, long-term behavior, closure, aftercare, environmental impact, and sustainability. It is written for practitioners who need specific information on the options available for landfill construction and operation, but also addresses the needs of those who are concerned about the possible return of these sites to landscapes and their subsequent uses for future generations.

  • Includes input by international contributors from a vast number of disciplines
  • Provides worldwide approaches and technologies, and showcases the interdisciplinary nature of the topic
  • Focuses on sustainability, covering the lifecycle of landfills under the concept of minimizing environmental impact
  • Presents knowledge of the legal framework and economic aspects of landfilling
  • Features editors who are key researchers on landfilling, and who organize the annual Sardinia Symposium, the most renowned symposium in waste management
