Abstract

The study had four key components: (1) A laboratory study of the effects of the mass loading, temperature, size and shape of particles in the granular media, and filter material between the waste and the granular material on clogging; (2) A field investigation of portions of the leachate collection system at the Keele Valley Landfill that was carried out alongside an examination of the suitability of dolomilic limestone for use in leachate collection systems; (3) The development of a model for interpreting the results of the laboratory tests; and (4) The integration of concepts and data from these investigations to develop a practical engineering technique for estimating the service life of leachate collection systems. The findings are summarised.
