Abstract

In Japan, the remaining life of municipal waste landfill sites are decreasing and, to minimize the amount of waste going to landfill, much of it is first incinerated. Main component of land filled solid wastes are incineration residue such as bottom ash and fly ash. Recently, the new type incinerator factories for molten slag were built, which is melted a bottom ash and fly ash. On the other hand, the natural aggregates for construction are exhausted. Therefore, the solid wastes should be reused and recycled in order to prolong the life of landfill site and to prevent the environment. This study carried out to investigate the mechanical characteristics of the air-cement treated soil using the incineration residue (bottom ash and molten slag) and surplus soil. Additionally, it is important to investigate the safety of these improved materials. Therefore, it carried out to investigate the leaching properties of this material for the influence evaluation of ground environment.
