Dissolved organic macromolecules (DOM) and micropollutants, such as phthalic acid esters (PAEs), are often enriched in landfill leachate. PAEs were detected in 10 leachate samples from three landfills in Hubei province, central China. In particular, di-(2-ethyhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) concentration was higher than 70microgL(-1) in most samples, and the… CONTINUE READING
