Analyzing the development in China’s landfill technology research ranges from 1997 to 2020 at the aspects of chronological distribution, high-yield journals, high-yield research institutions and keyword hotspot through Histcite, which sets landfill relevant studies in Web of Science as statistical samples. The result indicates: 1) The engineering application of landfill has declined, but the interest in landfill academic research has increased per year. 2) Although China’s landfill technology is globally highly researched, the depth and recognition of research need to be further improved from the facets of cited times. 3) Landfill articles published in JOURNAL OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS have the highest impact factor and better recognition. 4) Tongji University is the critical institute of landfill technology research. 5) The research hotspots in recent 24 years are leachate treatment methods, leachate composition analysis, landfill gas treatment and oxidation repair technology, etc.
