Solid Waste Landfilling: Processes, Technology and Environmental Impacts provides interdisciplinary information on the concepts, processes and various technologies for promoting stabilization and minimizing environmental impacts in landfills. The book starts with the methods of pre-treatment of waste, and then continues through long-term aftercare and remediation. As the main challenges in waste management are the reduction and proper treatment of waste and the appropriate use of waste streams, the book satisfies the needs of a modern landfill, covering waste pre-treatment, in situ treatment, long-term behavior, closure, aftercare, environmental impact and sustainability.

The book is written for practitioners who need specific information on the options available for landfill construction and operation, but also addresses the needs of those who are concerned about the possible return of these sites to landscapes and their subsequent uses for future generations.
