This thesis aimed to elucidate the effects of dissolved organic matter on the applicability of electrocoagulation (EC) with iron electrodes for per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) removal from landfill leachate. The research methodology consisted of an experimental and a computational part. Galvanostatic EC experiments were...

Research on sustainable landfill management has been studied since 30 years ago in the Netherlands, the principle of which is to reduce the emission of harmful substances from the landfill to the surrounding soil and groundwater. As for this purpose, the active treatment is applied on Wieringermeer landfill, meanwhile, the long-term monitoring...

The goal of this bachelor thesis is to compare different datasets of precipitation from the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute for the purpose of modelling municipal solid waste landfills. It is essential to develop after-care methods for landfills so the future generations do not have to cope with the burden of the emission potential of...

Controlling subsurface flow is crucial to prevent: the spreading of contaminants, the failure of dikes or any undesirable water flow. Subsurface flow can be controlled by changing the soil permeability. In order to change soil permeability rigid structures are often installed (for example the installation of sheet pile walls into dike bodies),...

English: <br/>Landfills have been indicated as a major methane source. Methane oxidation systems are `low technology' systems that can treat these methane emissions. Yet, methane oxidation systems are herein still sub-optimal and leave room for improvement. A numerical model was established to research the effective gas permeability ratio...

Landfills are full of contaminated material, which could be harmful for the environment. To reduce the risks of pollutants entering the environment, a watertight base layer and an impermeable cover layer isolate the waste. These layers have to be maintained eternally, which is very costly. To move towards a more sustainable landfill aftercare,...

Popma, Johannes (author)
Leakage of contaminants to the subsurface is a potential threat to groundwater and is a major problem with storage tanks. When the contaminant reaches the groundwater, it can be subjected to subsurface flow due to which a contaminant plume may form and the contaminant can spread. In this research, it was investigated if a horizontal layer of...

The industrial site of Vosdonk Noord at Etten-Leur in the Netherlands consists of a large soil contamination in combination with highly heterogenic shallow subsurface soil characteristics. In this report, we study the groundwater flow and solute transport behaviour at this project location. Throughout this process, knowledge is gathered about...

Aftercare of sanitary landfills represents a burden for future generations, for emission potential of leachate and gases remains for hundred of years. Treatment methods have to be developed in order to accelerate waste degradation and reduce emission potential preferably within the time-span of one generation. Aeration seems a promising...
