A major problem arising from landfills is the discharge of leachate which is formed by water passing through the tip and thus becoming contaminated with various organic and inorganic pollutants. The subsequent movement of the leachate into the surrounding soil, ground water or surface water could lead to severe pollution problems. The mechanisms by which […]

|Be one of the first to buy this fact sheet! It’s the first of a planned series of Leachate Contaminant Fact Files!|
Our leachate fact sheets are based upon research carried out for the UK Department of Environment in the mid-1990s, updated and presented in bite-sized documents.
Designed as reference sources for leachate treatment scientists, regulatory bodies, and interested owners of landfill sites, these Fact Files come complete with a reference list for the original information sources, for those seeking to do further studies into the subject of each Fact File. (In this Fact File we cover a very important water contaminant which has been very controversial, and still does concern very many people.)
Although, this Fact File has been specifically created with the leachate management/ water quality specialist in mind, it contains much information which is relevant to the assessment of PCB hazards in any water body, and the environment generally.
The price of this Fact File will be £15 when the full series is published
Just think of the time it would take you to research this information yourself, even if the information was freely available? This is high value, and very specialised, information, at a remarkably low price!

Leachate pumps and pumping technologies currently in use in landfills in the UK, and worldwide, are listed and explained.
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.
Leachate extraction embraces landfill site wells and boreholes, pumping systems, plus pipelines, leachate monitoring and control systems.
Leachate recirculation in the form of pumping leachate from the base of a cell back up into the top of the waste has been practised in the past, and continues to be used, at the majority of landfills.
Have you ever wondered why leachates can seem so different. Some leachate is cloudy, black, and smells strongly, while at other times it is fairly odorless and amber coloured?
