Providing detailed coverage of the physical and biological characteristics of solid waste sites, Waste Sites as Biological Reactors: Characterization and Modeling describes the parameters required to understand, model, and assess the capacity of a waste disposal site as an open biodegradation system. It includes original analyses of waste and reactor kinetics, decomposition, temperature and moisture effects, and heat properties and discusses landfill gas and leachate chemicals generation with detailed composition and property data. Tables and figures provide easy access to the information, and the book discusses various site management options.
