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 […]

In a research project completed on behalf of the UK Environment Agency data was collected data and leachates were sampled from EU landfills that had received imports of MSOR (Mechanically Sorted Organic Refuse) and Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) wastes, several years ago. The results of the sampling exercise were analysed for, the presence of trace […]
INTRODUCTION Within the last many years there have actually been major advances in the variety, engineering and control of landfill sites; however it is still a fact that at many sites the generation of very polluting sanitary landfill leachates is still the significant possible environmental problem to be conquered. Although research and experience continue to […]
Anaerobic digestion is becoming increasingly popular in this age of high energy prices, and many more people are realising that whereas aerobic treatment systems consume large amounts of expensive energy, anaerobic digestion is a process which does the opposite. In fact it produces a net energy output. It is not surprising therefore, that many […]
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
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.
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?
