Editorial Reviews

Begins a series of state-of-the-art international reference books on landfilling of waste, useful for implementing improvements at actual landfill sites and for identification of new directions in landfill research. This volume on leachate, the strongly contaminated wastewater developing in landfills, consists of edited, selected contributions to the International Symposia on Sanitary Landfills held in Sardinia (Italy) every second year and of chapters specially written for this volume. 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. The introductory chapter presents an overview of the main aspects covered throughout the volume. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
