Mechanical-Biological Treatment

Humification processes and fate of humic substancesduring pretreatment and landfilling of residual municipal solid waste

Investigations confirm that compliance with the limiting values for loss on ignition and total carbon content defined in the Technical Instruction on Municipal Waste is not possible where mechanically-biologically pre-treated residual waste is used as landfill. At the same time, the limited microbial degradation and conversion processes observed are reflected in the minimal emissions generated.
