Effect of Geomembrane Ageing on the Diffusion of VOCS through HDPE Geomembranes


This paper describes the migration of four commonly found volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in landfill leachates e.g., benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes through 1.5mm thick high density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes. Diffusion and sorption tests were conducted at room temperature (i.e., 22C) on both unaged and 13-month aged geomembrane samples… (More)
