This study considers the leaching behaviour of heavy metals from Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator (MSWI) fly ash contained in a landfill dedicated solely to fly ash disposal. Large scale lysimeters were used to study four materials: untreated fly ash; two types of chemically treated fly ash; and a molten fly ash slag. The study also considers the effect of highly saline solutions to accelerate the leaching of lead and concludes that the concentration of calcium ions influences the leaching process.
