Bioreactors are designed to rapidly stabilize the waste mass inside the landfill by controlled use of liquids and air. (EPA/600/R-03/097) September 2003

This is an interim report resulting from a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between EPA's National Risk Management Research Laboratory and an ongoing field demonstration of municipal waste landfills being operated as bioreactors.

Bioreactors are designed to rapidly stabilize the waste mass inside the landfill by controlled use of liquids and air. The technique is under way at a new landfill and has been retrofitted at an existing landfill. Landfill gas, solids, and leachate parameters are being monitored and interim results are reported here with the aim of assessing the effective and safe use of this operational technique at future bioreactor landfills.
