Argentina
  • Two Sites:
    • Landfill in Tucumán
    • Wastewater treatment facility in Alta Gracia (outskirts of Córdoba)
  • Both sites are in northern Argentina
tucum n landfill
Tucumán Landfill
  • Serves a population of ~1,000,000
  • Approximately 500-700 tonnes per day incoming waste
  • Currently operating outside design intentions
  • Limited space for leachate treatment

Tucumán Landfill
  • Bioreactor landfills operate as controlled bioreactors, where waste degradation could be greatly enhanced
  • Advantages:
    • Enhance biodegradation of solid waste
    • Increase rate of methane generation
    • Rapid reduction of contaminant life span
    • Rapid recovery of landfill air space
