This webinar will address key basilar features of sanitary landfills. All over the world various waste management strategies are being implemented according to different geographic conditions (culture, climate, economic and social conditions, etc.).

But in any considered strategies landfilling plays a fundamental role.
Although knowledge about landfilling has significantly advanced and related technologies developed quite significantly, still mis-planning and mis-operation can be observed worldwide, often supported by regulations that need to be updated.
