Bioleaching of mortars and concretes containing bottom ashes from MSWI plants

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Two mortars (B2/1 and B2/2) and one concrete (B3/1) containing bottom ashes from Municipal Solid Waste Incineration (MSWI) plants were submitted to a bioleaching test in order to assess the effect of biological activity in the release of different chemical species. The effect of monolithic materials in the chemical conditions of leaching media, biological growth and biological diversity was more significant than the biological effect over the leaching behavior of the materials.
