Abstract

The paper discusses a critical situation regarding unequipped municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. Emissions of toxic gases from a "close laboratory dump” and a real smoldering solid waste landfill have been measured. Special attention is given to such problems as bio-degradation and self-ignition of MSW dumps caused by bacterial activity in the body of the landfill. The paper describes the materials as well as techniques used for experiments and calculations of results. Dynamics of development of microorganism colonies within the body of MSW has been studied experimentally and a mathematical model of these processes was developed. A method for extinguishing a smoldering MSW landfill has been developed and tested.
