Although bioreactor landfills have many advantages associated with them, challenges remain, including the persistence of ammonia-nitrogen in the leachate. It has been suggested that ammonia-nitrogen is one of the most significant long-term pollution problem in landfills and is likely a parameter that will determine when landfill postclosure monitoring may end. The fate of nitrogen in bioreactor landfills is not well understood. As more landfills transition operation to bioreactors, more attention must be paid to bow operating the landfill as a bioreactor may affect the fate of nitrogen. Processes such as sorption, volatilization, nitrification, denitrification, anaerobic ammonium oxidation, and dissimilatory nitrate reduction may all occur.
