Abstract:

Specific physical characteristics of a typical solid waste landfill were selected based on their correlation with potential landfill design operation procedural changes and their suitability in being monitored under varying conditions within a sanitary landfill simulator SLS. Design requirements of and SLS were outlined relating to scaling, pressure, temperature, gas composition, operation, maintenance, instrumentation, and control. A conceptual design meeting these requirements was developed for laboratory equipment capable of simulating a section within a landfill representative of actual landfill conditions. The basic concept had a limited chamber temperature capability of 200 F however, operation of a 1,500 F chamber to support pyrolysis was considered.
