Principles and Practice of Waste Encapsulation is devoted to the philosophy and practice of the design and construction of encapsulation systems that control waste dispersal. The book describes both existing encapsulation systems and those in the planning stages for disposal facilities ranging from simple dumps to sophisticated mixed waste facilities. It integrates the diverse technologies and scientific disciplines that are involved in the design, construction, and maintenance of a durable encapsulation system. Technical approaches that have been developed in the last decade to provide objective quantification of the long-term (up to 1,000 years) performance of these systems are examined. Case histories are also included. Both ecological and engineering perspectives are presented in this important book for civil and geotechnical engineers, environmental scientists, environmental regulators, and others interested in permanent waste encapsulation.
