Construction has started on the world’s most expensive leachate treatment plant which at $27 million will be the most expensive ever built in the world to date. A number of plants are estimated to have been built at up to $15 million previously, but this one is significantly the most expensive in terms of the […]

The Reverse Osmosis process is unique, it alone consistently removes salts (salinity) from leachate, apart from prohibitively energy expensive, physical evaporative methods, so it is an obvious candidate for leachate treatment.
When people refer to high strength leachate they are normally referring to the landfill leachate from a sanitary landfill which has percolated slowly through the waste. That is leachate and has been extracted by the leachate collection and pumping system. Usually high strength leachate has ammoniacal nitrogen concentrations above 500 mg/l up to 3.500 mg/l, […]
Download our FREE time saving calculator which is intended for use for trade effluent discharge cost assessments for England, Wales and Northern Ireland in respect of sewer discharges. The Free Trade Effluent Charges Calculator software will be useful for anyone making an industrial effluent discharge to a sewer, and who wants to know how much […]
In recent years there has been a trend toward MSW leachates from Sanitary Landfills throughout the world becoming more similar, however, as Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) is increasingly implemented and more Mechnanically Sorted Organic Residue (MSOR) [also known as “residual waste”] is produced in the supply area for a landfill, so the leachate quality of […]
WRc, has reported on field trials in Britain inquiring into the utilisation of short rotation coppice (SRC) willow to treat leachate. The method is in use at several UK landfills where it is reported to be a low cost sustainable meathod of leachate
Leachate pumps and pumping technologies currently in use in landfills in the UK, and worldwide, are listed and explained.
Leachate landfills – general information about leachate, and how it is present in landfilled waste, affects landfills, and is collected.
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.
