A simple field method to qualify the state of saturation in capillary barriers
Abstract: A simple and straightforward field method to rapidly qualify the state of saturation of moisture retaining layers (MRL) is proposed and the details of its calibration and operation, described. The technique is ...
Determination of the diffusion coefficient of oxygen for a cover system including a pulp and paper by-product
ABSTRACT: Among the several solutions that have been proposed to curb the problem posed by the generation of acid rock drainage (ARD), the placement of covers with capillary barrier effect (CCBE) has received particular ...
Environmental, geotechnical and hydraulic behaviour of a cellulose-rich by-product used as alternative cover material
Abstract: Deinking by-product (DBP), a cellulose-rich by-product produced in the early stages of the paper recycling process, has been used as alternative material for the construction of cover systems for municipal waste ...
Determination of the soil water characteristic curve of highly compressible materials: Case study of pulp and paper by-product
Abstract: A technique was developed for the determination of various points of the soil-water characteristic curve (SWCC)—including the air entry value (AEV)—of compressible materials from one single test. The testing ...
Anaerobic biodegradation of an organic by-products leachate by interaction with different mine tailings
Abstract: Deinking by-products from paper recycling has been used as cover material on acid-producing tailings. Due to remaining cellulose, anaerobic degradation leads to the production of an organic-rich leachate, which ...
