It comes out from it from the analysis of the whole of the physicochemical results of the landfills of the engineered landfills of Ain Temouchent, that the master key through four stages: aerobic stage, transition stage, acetogenic stage and tends towards that of the methanogenesis.
The determination of the physicochemical, bacteriological characteristics of the landfill of the engineered landfills of Ain Temouchent will thus make it possible to direct the die of their treatment to meet the most strict standards of rejection.
The landfill throughout in developing world (1997-1998), [7] found varying amounts of planning and engineering in municipal solid waste dumping; among the various regions visited, African nations (with the exception of South Africa) had the fewest engineered landfills, with most nations practicing open dumping for waste disposal; waste managers in Asian and Latin American nations were more likely to be aware of environmental effects of improper landfill design and were much more likely to design and implement some control measures, however limited in scope.
This means reducing the amount of waste going to engineered landfills through a waste diversion process, which involves segregation and recycling and also recovering value from waste to generate energy.
The official from Be'ah said they are working towards implementing modern waste management aimed at reducing the amount of waste going into the engineered landfills.
The rejects from these facilities would then be diverted to the engineered landfills," he said.
He noted that in Oman, Oman Environmental Services Holding Company is embarking on a strategic roadmap to establish 16 engineered landfills, 65 waste transfer stations and four waste treatment plants between 2011 and 2015.
Termed engineered landfills, the process involves reshaping the land filling area to appear more natural and to minimise hazardous exposure to atmosphere.
These are establishment of 16 engineered landfills, 65 waste transfer stations and four solid waste treatment plants.
They will be replaced by 13 engineered landfills roughly one for each governorate and supported by 36 transfer stations, Al Harthy said.
