The problem can be overcome by the utilisation of certain suitable waste streams as alternative landfill covers. The objective of this study was to assess the suitability of Construction & Demolition fines (C&D), Commercial & Industrial fines (C&I) and woodchip (WC) as potential landfill cover materials in terms of odour control. Background odour analysis was conducted to determine if any residual odour was emitted from the cover types. It was deemed negligible for the three materials. The odour reduction performance of each of the materials was also examined on an area of an active landfill site. A range of intermediate cover compositions were also studied to assess their performance. Odour emissions were sampled using a Jiang hood and analysed. Results indicate that the 200 mm deep combination layer of C&D and wood chip used on-site is adequate for odour abatement. The application of daily cover was found to result in effective reduction allowing for the background odour of woodchip.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2009 Elsevier Ltd.||Keywords:||Daily landfill cover;Woodchip;Construction & Demolition fines (C&D);Commercial & Industrial fines (C&I);Landfill, odour||DOI:||10.1016/j.biortech.2009.09.030||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
