About this book

Although much information and experience in landfill design and operation has been obtained in recent years, only a few meet the current standards for an environmentally acceptable landfill. In view of the increasing public awareness and new scientific understanding of waste disposal problems, the standards for landfilling of waste may improve even further in the years to come. In view of this great demand for information on landfills, a series of international reference books on landfilling of waste was established. The first book dealt with leachate, the strongly contaminated wastewater developing in landfills. Aspects such as landfill hydrology, leachate characterization and composition, factors controlling leachate quality, principles of leachate treatment and effects of leachate in groundwater are discussed in great detail. This book, the second in the series, deals with lining and leachate collection. After an introductory chapter presenting the various issues of lining and drainage, aspects such as design and construction of lining systems, properties and quality control of clay and synthetic materials, geotextiles and geogrids, and finally drainage and collectio systems are discussed in detail. Scientists working in the fields of environmental engineering, civil/geotechnical engineering, sanitary engineering, waste management, academics, consultants, and landfill operating companies will all find this book of interest.
