The need for solid household waste (MSW) generated by economic and domestic activities is continuous and should be imposed to protect the health of the population and environmental factors. After sorting the generated waste, „the remaining residue” favours the occurrence of some pollutants, among which we mention suspended particulates, disagreeable odours, greenhouse gases, etc. This waste has to be managed in safe health and environment, no matter where it was generated. Managing them means either storing in statutory environmental protection facilities or incinerating in authorized installations with integrated environmental permitting. Waste storage may be subject to a mathematical equation called the time equation of a landfill. On the basis of such equation, it will be possible to calculate annually the amount of degraded waste gas generating gas (LFG) containing CH4 and CO2. The amount of degraded waste means waste with high dissolved organic carbon (DOC).
