Natural attenuation: A feasible approach to remediation of landfill leachate plumes?

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Natural attenuation has been implemented for petroleum hydrocarbons plumes and recently also for chlorinated solvent plumes, primarily in the USA, but natural attenuation has not yet gained a foothold with respect to leachate plumes. Based on the experiences gained from ten years of research on two Danish landfills, it is suggested that natural attenuation is a feasible approach, but much more complicated and demanding than in the case of petroleum hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvent.
