Municipal solid waste (MSW) was accompanied through a mechanical-biological treatment plant. Over a period of 20 weeks samples were taken at different stages of treatment. Samples were analysed for physico-chemical parameters, reactional behaviour (respiration activity, gas-generating potential)...
Leachates produced in a simulated landfill pilot plant were compared with those produced at the Zoreda landfill in Asturias, Spain. Three loads of different amounts of municipal solid waste (MSW) were added to the pilot plant at different stages, thus forming consecutive layers. Up to the...
The seasonal variation in waste collectors' exposure to microorganisms, endotoxin and dust was measured with personal sampling equipment. The measurement was carried out in three different combinations of storage and collection systems for biowaste: container/compactor truck (C/C), paper...
