... in the remediation of former landfills. Leachate escape, either through migration to groundwaters or by breakout from the landfill surface, has the capacity to cause severe contamination of adjacent waterways and groundwaters. The potential for leachate migration is increased by poor siting of many former landfills...

INTRODUCTION: Increasingly it is realized that, under economical and ecological aspects, conventional pump-and-treat systems for remediation of contaminant plumes do not lead to satisfying results. This is particularly true if remediation periods of several decades are anticipated, which means...
