Landfills are the primary option for waste disposal all over the world. Most of the landfill sites across the world are old and are not engineered to prevent contamination of the underlying soil and groundwater by the toxic leachate. The pollutants from landfill leachate have accumulative and detrimental effect on the ecology and food chains leading to carcinogenic effects, acute toxicity, and genotoxicity among human beings. Management of this highly toxic leachate presents a challenging… 
Recent Advances of Landfill Leachate Treatment
Landfill leachate poses significant risks to the environment and human health if not managed properly due to its potential to contaminate soil, ground, and surface waters. Consequently, effluent

A Study on the Landfill Leachate and Its Impact on Groundwater Quality of Ghazipur Area, New Delhi, India
Municipal solid waste disposal in a non-engineered landfill is one of the serious threats to groundwater quality deterioration. In fact, the leachate generated from landfill percolates the strata and
Hazardous Components of Landfill Leachates and Its Bioremediation
Landfill leachates contain both dissolved and suspended material and may pose a threat to the environment because of the toxic substances that it carries and contaminates surface water and
Characterization of Lakhodair Landfill Leachate
Leachate is the water contained in the solid waste dumped in a landfill and comes out during its decomposition but continues to ooze out even after stabilization of the solid waste and many years
The status of leachate monitoring programmes on selected landfill sites in Serbia
The disposal of waste on landfill sites has increasingly caused concern about possible adverse health effects for populations living nearby, particularly in relation to those sites where potentially


Evaluating leachate contamination potential of landfill sites using leachate pollution index
The dumping of solid waste in uncontrolled landfills can cause significant impacts on the environment and human health. The principal concern is focussed on the pollution potential due to migration
