  • Discussions on revegetation of landfill sites
  • Selected approaches for the investigation of microbial interactions in landfill sites
  • Summary

    This book was originally published in 1990 and was the first text to consider the definitive fundamental science of landfill biotechnology. Since then, major research initiatives, particularly in the U.K. and South Africa, have resulted in considerable advancement in our knowledge of landfill microbiology. The Second Edition details this progress.
    Text considers the latest findings in landfill leachate treatment, co-disposal and fundamental microbiology. It brings together the expertise of the immediate complementary, but often disparate disciplines of soil science, environmental engineering, applied mathematics, and land reclamation and focuses on the common goal of the scientific design and management of landfill sites. The book also includes effective laboratory models and selected approaches.
