It is well known that it takes long time to stabilize landfill and meet the standard for leachate after landfilling is stopped. Moreover, the time required to meet the standard is not predicted. In this research, the rapid small-scale column test (RSSCT) was applied and was found to predict the dissolved organic carbon (DOC) leaching from municipal solid waste incineration bottom ash in a simulated landfill site. Acid washing with hydrochloric acid remarkably reduced the DOC leaching from bottom ash. According to the RSCCT, it was estimated that the acid washing would reduce the time for DOC stabilization of bottom ash by about 80% in a simulated landfill situation.
