Sanitary Landfill Leachate Past and Future

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 […]

Leachate Recirculation Practise and Views

To the site operator leachate recirculation would certainly appear like commonsense as some of the leachate recirculated will be taken in by the waste and not re-appear. The leachate will gain some treatment – especially a significant reduction in BOD and COD by anaerobic digestion within a methanogenic landfill. In addition, if leachate is being […]

Landfill leachate composition for United Kingdom Landfills was first published in the Waste Management Papers published by the UK Department of Environment. Waste Management Paper 26 contains the most recent table of Landfill Leachate Composition before the WMP series was superseded by later documents, notably the DoE’s Leachate Report of 1995. However, the original table, […]

How Contaminants Leach Out of Landfill Waste and Into Leachate

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. Ths subsequent movement of the leachate into the surrounding soil, ground water or surface water could lead to severe pollution problems. The mechanisms by which […]
