Abstract:
Beneficial utilization of residues from municipal solid waste inceneration is an important objective for integrated waste management in many jurisdictions. When residues are to be used as an aggregate substitute in construction applications, the release of constituents of concern to soils and water through leaching is an important environmental consideration. In this paper, residue characteristics that control constituent leaching and testing approaches for evalutating leaching are discussed. Quality control and potential improvement in case of beneficial application are addressed.
