Microbial nitrogen transformation potential in surface run-off leachate from a tropical landfill.


Ammonium is one of the major toxic compounds and a critical long-term pollutant in landfill leachate. Leachate from the Jatibarang landfill in Semarang, Indonesia, contains ammonium in concentrations ranging from 376 to 929mgNL(-1). The objective of this study was to determine seasonal variation in the potential for organic nitrogen ammonification, aerobic… (More)
