There are three very important leachate indicator parameters which are used as indicators to identify leachate contamination in any water sample analysed in a water quality laboratory. These three parameters can give an initial guide to anyone investigating what appears to be pollution occurring in the vicinity of a landfill, as to whether the source […]

When leachate must be treated to a very high standard for watercourse discharges which require not only for the reactive components of leachate to be removed but also require non-reactive compounds to be removed such as the sodium chloride, which is always elevated in MSW landfill leachate, the technology of Reverse Osmosis may be the […]
Air Ammonia Stripping is a leachate treatment process which is now largely outdated and seldom used.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 […]
When designing any leachate management system the assessment of the most economic method for leachate treatment and disposal is heavily dependent upon the flow rate and duration of flow. A high capital cost option such as on site leachate treatment will be worthwhile, but only if the total volume the plant treats daily is sustained […]
Most landfills still generate leachate, and the first and most obvious action, when leachate starts to appear, is to… Read this to find out more!
Landfill Operators must watch out for any landfills leachate accumulating in their landfills. This is to avoid finding that large volumes of leachate have collected which may escape and threaten to the local water environment. The solution is given here.
