*  Be Green!: Landfills (conclusion coming up)
Be Green!: Landfills conclusion coming up. Landfills conclusion coming up. If landfills are not stopped, it will impact our Earth. One type of landfill is a sanitary landfill. This landfill actually helps the environment. The people seal the garbage away. The second type is municipal solid waste. To produce this methane gas and others, H2O and oxygen go into the dirt covered pack. In a sanitary landfill, operators have to control the H2O and oxygen. If operators cover the pack too early, the pack will go down and pollute for a long time. Years years are bad. Like I said, it produces many gases to harm the atmosphere. These gases contribute to different climate changes. Also, if the landfill pack is covered too early, it is also polluting the ground and air. Humans keep putting garbage into landfills. The more garbage, the more the world is having weird climate changes and negative effects to our environment. One way is that miners can come, because there are minerals in landfills. If we also educate people ab...

*  Composite liner
There are different types of these landfill sites for the different types of solid wastes which society creates and leaves behind. There are certain levels of harmfulness in which the different types of trash have; therefore, there are different types of liner systems which are required for these different types of disposal sites. The first type is single liner-systems. These landfills are not meant to hold the disposal of harmful liquid wastes such as paint, tar, or any other type of liquid garbage that can easily seep through a single liner system. These systems are usually found in municipal solid waste landfills as well all hazardous waste landfills. Composite liners are required to be used in municipal solid waste systems for landfills and use a double liner system which is composed of a leachate system which is a liquid that collects solids from the substance this is passed through it. The leachate system is surrounded in a by a type of solid drainage layer such as gravel which is enclosed by a geomembr...

The landfills that capture biogas in the US collect about 2.6 million tonnes of methane annually, 70% of which is used to generate heat and/or electricity. However, the reported rate of generation of methane in industrial anaerobic digestion reactors ranges from 40 to 80 Nm 3 per tonne of organic wastes. Therefore, for the estimated global landfilling of 1.5 billion tones annually, the corresponding rate of methane generation at landfills is 75 billion Nm 3.

Volume 19, Issue 6 November 1991 Analysis of Large Diameter High-Density Polyethylene Plastic Pipes As Vertical Shafts in Landfills CODEN: JTEOAD   Format Pages Price  . Abstract The recent trend in the increasing use of large diameter flexible plastic pipes as vertical shafts or manholes in landfills or hazardous waste containment areas has resulted in a need for a thorough understanding of the soil-structure interaction of these pipes for the purpose of design. In this paper the soil-structure interaction response of flexible vertical shafts in landfills is described. A plane strain finite element program is modified and converted into an axisymmetric finite element program which then is used to determine the displacements and stresses in the pipe and the surrounding fill. The hoop strain at the bottom of the pipe is the critical design element, sinc...

*  Landfills hustle to catch tainted rain water before it seeps away
... Smoky Mountain News. News. Landfills hustle to catch tainted rain water before it seeps away Written by Bibeka Shrestha. When it comes to landfills, rain isn’t just inconvenient — it’s dangerous. In 2009, the White Oak landfill in Haywood County had to contend with more than 35 million gallons of rainwater seeping into disposed waste. While 80 percent of that rainwater is absorbed by the trash, the remaining 20 percent transforms into a contaminated liquid called leachate, which poses significant environmental and health risks. The region saw about 62 inches of rain last year, falling just three inches short of the 1973 record. And if the rain wasn’t bad enough, the county got 22 inches of snow in December. “It’s just a constant battle out there,” said Stephen King, waste director for Haywood County. The White Oak landfill collects its leachate into a pool then hauls it to a wastewater treatment plant, an endeavor that alone cost $56,000 during the previous year when the region was in an extreme drought....

... Landfills Make Air Pollution Too Mar 30, 2012. Environmental Protection Agency EPA announced March 28 that Forward Inc., of Manteca, has agreed to a settlement to resolve alleged violations of air pollution laws at its landfill in Manteca. The settlement requires Forward to spend approximately $3.8 million to improve the landfill’s gas collection and control system and to replace trucks in the landfill’s fleet with less polluting vehicles. Forward has also agreed to pay a civil penalty of $200,000, to be shared with the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District, a co-plaintiff in the enforcement action against Forward. The settlement resolves allegations that Forward violated the Clean Air Act by operating gas extraction wells in the landfill’s gas system in violation of the permit it had received from the District, and that Forward did not obtain permits required for equipment at the landfill. Federal law requires large landfills that are significant emitters of air pollution to install ...

*  Junipero Serra Landfill
... The 'Junipero Serra Landfill' was a solid waste disposal site in Colma, California, USA. The site was closed in 1983 and ultimately developed by commercial land uses, collectively known as the Metro Center. The original commercial use built on the closed landfill site was a Home Depot Inc.retail store and parking lot constructed over 1,348 piles, each driven approximately 160ft deep into the landfill Bay Area Rapid Transit District, 2006. The site also required the engineering of a landfill gas control system, since, when organic solid waste aerobically decomposes, it produces methane gas, which is explosive and toxic in large concentrations. SCS Engineers was presented an award by the Solid Waste Association of North America for the design of the closure methane capture system at this landfill. SCS Engineers, 2002. The Junipero Serra Landfill is situated on the San Francisco Peninsula in the eastern foothills of the northwest trending Santa Cruz Mountain Range. The foothills and eastern flanks of the ra...

But with increasing federal environmental regulations and the adoption of stricter guidelines in 1991 outlined in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40 Subtitle D, municipal solid waste landfills were engineered to address the environmental and health concerns affiliated with them. Anatomy of a Landfill Subtitle D placed location restrictions on landfills near airports, floodplains, wetlands, fault areas and seismic impact zones, but didn t consider the social impact of landfills on surrounding communities. The leachate can contain dissolved or suspended material, and the health and environmental risks of the leachate migrating to soil and groundwater are due to the potential presence of pathonogenic microorganisms and toxic substances like ammonia. To address this concern, design criteria requires the use of a composite liner system on the base and sides of the landfill to contain waste and minimize the transport of leachate to underlying soil and groundwater. Addressing leachate goes beyond lining syste...

American Recycler, November 2011. Trashed plastics could produce significant energy. Trashed plastics could produce significant energy. A new study conducted by the Earth Engineering Center EEC of Columbia University and sponsored by the American Chemistry Council has found that if all of the non-recycled plastics that are currently put into landfills each year in the United States were converted to energy using currently available technologies, they could provide at least enough energy to fuel six million cars annually. “Plastics have a significantly higher energy value than coal,” said professor Marco J. “Capturing the energy value of non-recycled plastics – and municipal solid waste in general – makes good sense because it provides a good domestic form of energy while minimizing impacts on the environment.”. The study also estimated that if all the non-recycled plastics discarded in the United States annually were diverted to modern waste-to-energy facilities, they could produce 52 million MWh of electrici...

The national recycling rate rose from 34% to 34.1% when U.S. EPA revised the 2010 Municipal Solid Waste Characterization report, but mostly because the agency added caps and lids back into the calculation for polyethylene terephthalate PET bottles and jars. That increased the PET container rate to 29.2% from 21%, but reverting to former formulas caused the rate for co...

*  Landfill fire
In landfills that do not cover their waste with daily cover, biological decomposition creates substantial heat and can cause material in the landfills to spontaneously combust. Landfill fires are especially dangerous as they can emit dangerous fumes from the combustion of the wide range of materials contained within the landfill. Subsurface landfill fires also, unlike a typical fire, can not be put out with water. They are similar to coal seam fires and peat fires. Oxygen intrution control is the best method to prevent and fight subsurface landfill fires. "Fuel quenching", by allowing landfill gas build-up, can work well, especially in conjunction with maintenance of the daily cover of soil or material places on landfills. Nearby streams can be threatened by leachate pools which may form if water is used to extinguish fires in landfills. Normally this liner prevents harmful liquids contained within the landfill from escaping into the groundwater and nearby streams. Destruction of the liner therefore leads to ...

TOWN OF ULSTER, N.Y. -- Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency officials say they'll be ready for discussions about establishing a county landfill once the current debate over a flow-control law has ended. "I've been doing this in my spare time, thinking that maybe, at some point in time, we might be looking at one of those properties as a landfill," said Landi, a former city of Kingston alderman. The list includes three properties in Denning, two in Esopus, one in Gardiner, 21 in Hardenburgh, three in Hurley, two in Lloyd, one in Marbletown, three in New Paltz, six in Olive, four in Rochester, one in Rosendale, one in Saugerties, 11 in Shandaken, 21 in Wawarsing and 13 in Woodstock.

*  Plasma gasification
... 'Plasma gasification' is a process which converts organic matter into synthetic gas, electricity, and slag using plasma. A plasma torch powered by an electric arc, is used to ionize gas and catalyze organic matter into synthetic gas and solid waste slag. 1 2 3 It is used commercially as a form of waste treatment and has been tested for the gasification of biomass and solid hydrocarbons, such as coal, oil sands, and oil shale. Advantages Disadvantages Commercialization Military Use See also References External links. The resulting elemental components are in a gaseous phase. Molecular dissociation using plasma is referred to as "plasma pyrolysis .". The feedstock for plasma waste treatment is most often municipal solid waste, organic waste, or both. Too much inorganic material such as metal and construction waste increases slag production, which in turn decreases syngas production. Plasma processing of waste is ecologically clean. The production of ecologically clean synthetic gas is the standard goal. Th...

Solid Waste Authority tours landfill. – Tuesday afternoon's meeting of the Elk County Solid Waste Authority was held at the Veolia ES Greentree Landfill in Fox Township. Veolia Special Waste Coordinator Anthony LaBenne said the landfill can accommodate about 6,000 tons of waste per day and is currently averaging between 3,300 and 4,000 tons daily. Responding to a query about where most of the landfill contents are coming from, LaBenne said approximately 60 percent has been coming from out-of-state over the years, but has been reduced due to Marcellus Shale activity. Veolia has been approved by DEP to use tire shred as drainage material around pipes on the property.LaBenne said waste coming in as liquids may not be put directly into a landfill, so any liquid is first placed into a special area with other materials, including fly ash and lime, until it becomes solid and can be ...

... Image:Landfill face.JPG|300px A 'landfill site' also known as 'tip', 'dump' or 'rubbish dump' and historically as a ' midden ', is a site for the disposal of waste materials by burial and is the oldest form of waste treatment. Historically, landfills have been the most common methods of organized waste disposal and remain so in many places around the world. Landfills may include internal waste disposal sites where a producer of waste carries out their own waste disposal at the place of production as well as sites used by many producers. Unless they are stabilized, these areas may experience severe shaking or liquefaction of the ground in a large earthquake. During landfill operations the waste collection vehicles are weighed at a weighbridge on arrival and their load is inspected for wastes that do not accord with the landfill’s waste acceptance criteria. Afterward, the waste collection vehicles use the existing road network on their way to the tipping face or working front where they unload their load. ...

(2/363) Evaluation of dehydrated restaurant food waste products as feedstuffs for finishing pigs.

Two dehydrated restaurant food waste (DFW) products were evaluated as potential feedstuffs for finishing pigs. For each product, fresh food wastes were obtained from food service operations at a resort complex in central Florida. The wastes were mostly leftover food and plate scrapings. The wastes were minced, blended with a feed stock (soy hulls and wheat flour [DFW1] or soy hulls and ground corn [DFW2]), pelleted, and dried. The dried product was then blended with additional minced fresh food wastes and dried; this process was then repeated. The final DFW products contained approximately 60% dried food wastes. The DFW1 and DFW2 products contained 11.4 and 8.4% moisture, 15.0 and 14.4% CP, 13.8 and 16.0% crude fat, 10.4 and 14.5% crude fiber, 5.8 and 4.7% ash, .63 and .64% lysine, .54 and .63% Ca, .34 and .38% P, .69 and .86% Cl, and .35 and .47% Na, respectively. Two feeding trials with 48 and 72 finishing pigs (56 to 112 kg), respectively, were conducted comparing diets without (control) or with the DFW product included at 40% of the diet (DFW1) for Trial 1 and 40 or 80% of the diet (DFW2) for Trial 2. Pigs fed the DFW diets in both trials had ADG that were similar (P > . 10) to and average gain:feed ratios that were superior (P = .06, Trial 1; P < .01; linear, Trial 2) to those for control pigs. Carcass lean content and lean quality scores were not reduced (P > . 10) by feeding pigs the DFW diets in either trial. Carcass fat became softer (P < .01; linear) with increasing amount of DFW2 in the diet in Trial 2. Thus, dehydrated restaurant food wastes have the potential to produce a nutritious feedstuff for pigs while offering a viable solid waste disposal option.  (+info)

(3/363) Exposure to airborne microorganisms and volatile organic compounds in different types of waste handling.

Occupational exposure of workers to airborne microorganisms and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in different types of waste treatment situations was examined during summer time. Microorganisms were collected as stationary samples using a six-stage Andersen impactor, while for VOCs both personal and stationary sampling was conducted. The exposure at the waste handling facility was considerably greater than at landfill sites or in waste collection. The concentrations of viable fungi were maximally 10(5) cfu/m3, and the concentrations of both total culturable bacteria and Gram-negative bacteria exceeded the proposed occupational exposure limit values (OELV), being 10(4) and 10(3) cfu/m3, respectively. Exposure to VOCs in the waste handling facility was three times higher than at the landfill sites, being at highest 3000 microg/m3, considered to be the limit for discomfort. The use of personal protective equipment at work, thorough hand washing and changing clothes after the work shift are strongly recommended in the waste handling facility and the landfill sites.  (+info)

(4/363) Talking trash: the economic and environmental issues of landfills.

The U.S. per-capita figure for garbage production has topped four pounds per person per day, and that amount is rising at roughly 5% per year. In the past, municipal solid waste was sent to the nearest local landfill or incinerator. But in 1988, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency instituted the first federal standards for landfills, designed to make them safer. Over 10,000 small municipal landfills have since been consolidated into an estimated 3,500 newer, safer landfills, some of which are "megafills" that can handle up to 10,000 tons of waste a day. The new landfills are outfitted to prevent air and water pollution and limit the spread of disease by scavengers. Although the new landfills provide better controls against air and water pollution as well as an alternate source of municipal income, they are not entirely problem-free. Some experts believe the new landfill technology has not been properly tested and will therefore not provide protection in the long run. Others feel that poorer, less well-informed communities are targeted as sites for new landfills. In addition, many people that live near megafills, which may draw garbarge from several states, are unhappy about the noise, truck traffic, odors, and pests caused by the facilities.  (+info)

(5/363) Trading trash: why the U.S. won't sign on to the Basel convention.

Environmentalists worry that hazardous wastes produced in industrialized nations are being dumped in cash-starved developing countries--the countries with the least political or economic clout to resist and the fewest resources for managing these toxic imports. Imported waste can pose a serious threat to the health of human populations and ecosystems if not managed appropriately. In 1989, the international community initiated efforts to reduce the flow of hazardous wastes from industrialized countries to developing countries by drafting a treaty known as the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Wastes and their Disposal. The convention's mission is to strictly regulate the international transfer of hazardous wastes and to ensure that wastes are managed and disposed of in an environmentally sound manner. Although the United States supports the convention in theory, it remains the only industrialized country within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development yet to ratify it. However, legislation drafted by the Clinton administration that is soon to go before the 106th Congress could make the United States a party to the convention.  (+info)

(6/363) Thauera mechernichensis sp. nov., an aerobic denitrifier from a leachate treatment plant.

A heterotrophic bacterial strain TL1T capable of aerobic denitrification was previously enriched in continuous culture from a landfill leachate treatment plant and isolated as a pure culture. The taxonomic position of this isolate within the beta-subclass of the Proteobacteria was determined by 16S rDNA sequence analysis and by conventional taxonomy including substrate spectrum, quinone type (ubiquinone Q-8) and cellular fatty acid composition. Detection of the specific polyamine 2-hydroxyputrescine supports the membership of strain TL1T in the beta-subclass of the Proteobacteria. The results of 16S rDNA sequencing showed that the strain clustered with, but was separate from, Thauera aromatica and Thauera selenatis. DNA-DNA hybridization experiments indicated that the new isolate represents a new species of the genus, for which the name Thauera mechernichensis is proposed; the type strain is DSM 12266T.  (+info)

(7/363) Evaluation of nitrogen and organic matter balance in the feedlot as affected by level and source of dietary fiber.

A trial was conducted to determine the effect of level and source of dietary fiber on N and OM excretion by cattle on finishing diets. One hundred twenty steers were stratified by weight and allotted to one of the following treatments: 7.5% roughage (7.5% R), wet corn gluten feed (WCGF; 41.5% of dietary DM), and all-concentrate (All Con) diet. Cattle were fed for 87 d during the summer with 23.7 m2 of pen area per animal. Steers fed the WCGF diet had heavier final weights, greater DMI, and higher ADG (P < .01) than the 7.5% R and All Con treatments. Steers fed All Con had lower (P < .01) DMI than the other two treatments. Nitrogen and OM mass balances in the feedlot were quantified. Main components were nutrient input, retention, and excretion. Nitrogen and OM intake of steers fed WCGF were greater (P < .05) than those of steers fed the other treatments. The WCGF treatment had a greater percentage of fecal N output (P < .05). The All Con treatment had a greater (P < .01) percentage of urinary N than WCGF and 7.5% R diets. Steers fed the WCGF treatment excreted more (P < .01) OM compared with the other treatments, which led to more N and OM being removed in manure at cleaning. The All Con treatment had more (P < .01) N and OM in runoff than the other treatments. Nutrition can change site of fermentation, which affects the composition of excreted material; however, total amount of N excreted may be more important than route of excretion in decreasing N losses to the environment and maximizing recovery in manure.  (+info)

(8/363) Exposure-response relationship between gastrointestinal problems among waste collectors and bioaerosol exposure.

OBJECTIVES: A high frequency of gastrointestinal problems has previously been reported for waste collectors. The present study relates the gastrointestinal problems to measurements of the bioaerosols that waste collectors are exposed to during work. METHODS: A job-exposure matrix was constructed from a combination of questionnaire data and field measurements. The questionnaire data were collected from 1747 male waste collectors and a comparison group of 1111 male municipal workers. Moreover a total of 189 full-shift personal samples was collected. The samples were used for characterizing the bioaerosol exposure described by viable fungi, total count of fungal spores, microorganisms, and endotoxins. RESULTS: In a multivariate analysis, high exposure to endotoxins was associated with nausea [prevalence proportion ratio (PPR) 1.60], and the risk of reporting nausea decreased with decreasing exposure so that workers with low exposure had the fewest reports (PPR 1.39) in the comparison with the unexposed group. High exposure to endotoxins was also associated with reports of diarrhea (PPR 5.60), and the risk of reporting diarrhea decreased with decreasing exposure so that the workers with low exposure had the fewest reports (PPR 3.02). The same pattern existed for exposure to fungi, for which high exposure resulted in the most reports (PPR = 4.59), and for diarrhea, for which low exposure resulted in the fewest reports (PPR = 3.15). CONCLUSIONS: An exposure-response relationship was found between nausea and endotoxin exposure and between diarrhea and exposure to both endotoxins and viable fungi.  (+info)
