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 […]

A History of Landfill Leachate
How leachate is a very recent problem, and how it has been solved for the present generation. But, at what cost in the future?
Are you worried about damage to the environment in the future from all that leachate
sitting in old landfills?
The alternative is to STOP landfilling as soon as possible by recycling almost everything.
The engineering methods used by the waste management industry to do that
and achieve close to “ZERO WASTE” are known as the “New Waste Technologies”.

Air Ammonia Stripping is a leachate treatment process which is now largely outdated and seldom used.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 […]
There are two strategies for leachate management. The most common and indeed the only legal way to do manage leachate in the European Union countries is to keep the waste as dry as possible, and not introduce any liquid wastes. That produces the least amount of leachate, and keeps costs low during the infilling of […]
Leachate pumps and pumping technologies currently in use in landfills in the UK, and worldwide, are listed and explained.
Leachate extraction embraces landfill site wells and boreholes, pumping systems, plus pipelines, leachate monitoring and control systems.
