Twelve compounds, representing major organic classes, were codisposed with municipal refuse waste using laboratory-scale refuse columns. The mobility of soluble, hydrophilic compounds was observed as a function of the affinity of these compounds for the refuse. Transport to column headspaces was detected for more volatile compounds. Hydrophobic compounds displayed little movement down the columns. Behavior of the compounds could be predicted using experimental linear isotherm partition coefficients. The results of this investigation provided a mechanistic evaluation of the attenuating capacity of municipal landfills for specific organic compounds.
