A monitoring program comprising chemical analysis and biological toxicity testing of leachate samples from 10 Danish landfills (six engineered and four uncontrolled) revealed the presence of 55 different xenobiotic organic compounds (XOCs) and 10 degradation products of XOCs. The compounds belong to the following groups: BTEX, C3-benzenes, bicyclo compounds, napthalenes, chlorinated aliphatics, phenols (chloro-, methyl-, dimethyl, nonyl-), pesticides, and phthalates. Concentrations of single… CONTINUE READING
