How to Treat Landfill Leachate Using a Saltworks Crystallizer System

Until now, the search for the perfect Leachate Treatment System has remained a dull one for those that know leachate. Somehow, all those contaminants it contains have contrived to make the most commonly used solutions highly complex, dependent on advanced technologies, and hard to operate successfully. Read about the new technology in the SaltMaker Evaporator […]

How a Membrane Bioreactor is Used to Treat Landfill Leachate

In principle, a membrane bioreactor combines biological treatment with a separation process using microfiltration membranes. A Membrane Bioreactor consists of a reactor tank and a microfiltration unit. In the reactor, the micro-organisms (mostly bacteria) transform dissolved polluted matter into biomass, and ammoniacal nitrogen (“ammonia”) into nitrate. Thus biodegradable organic pollutants are eliminated by the bioreactor […]

Air Ammonia Stripping

Air Ammonia Stripping is a leachate treatment process which is now largely outdated and seldom used. During the 1980s in the United Kingdom it was seen as a potential physico-chemical leachate treatment process which would be suitable for the treatment of leachate from sanitary (lined and capped) landfills, however, although a number of pilot scale […]

How Do You Treat Leachate?

First of all when asked the question, “How Do You Treat Leachate?”, we would like to make a distinction between true treatment which involves converting environmentally damaging substances to less, or non-toxic, ones, and simply concentrating the contaminants from the water in leachate to give a volume reduction. In the water industry both are known as […]

Leachate Treatment

The processes which have been consistently successfully applied, for muncipal waste landfill leachate from controlled landfills, are biological nitrification processes designed by specialist leachate process designers.
