TU Vortrag: Abfallwirtschaft

“Creating more Sustainable Landfills; Solving the Scientific and Regulatory Challenges in the Netherlands“, Prof. Timo Heimovaara, TU Delft

The TU Vienna is hosting another presentation within the seminar row „resource management and waste management“. 

Current after-care in the Netherlands is based on complete isolation of the waste body from the environment using geo-technical measures such as impermeable bottom liners, leachate collection and treatment systems etc. After active service life, an impermeable top cover is installed and funds are made available to the local authorities enabling eternal maintenance of the cover. This approach ought to prevent sanitary landfills from causing problems in the environment. Although this approach provides sufficient protection of the environment, one may debate if such an approach can considered sustainable, eternity lasts for a very long time.

This presentation will give an overview of the activities that have been carried out in the Netherlands in order to make the research program happen. A major effort has been to create an exemption in the current landfill regulations. Current regulations are such that it is impossible to carry out the pilot projects. In addition to the regulatory tract, a research program funded by the Dutch Science Foundation STW has been carried out where the aspects of landfill hydrology, bio-geochemistry, geophysics and up-scaling have been researched.

Monday, 05.05.2014, 13.00-14.30h

Ort: Technische Universität Wien (Hauptgebäude), Institut für Wassergüte, Ressourcenmanagement und Abfallwirtschaft, Karlsplatz 13, A-1040 Wien, Seminarraum 225, 2. Stock
