How to Treat Landfill Leachate Using a Saltworks Crystallizer System

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 […]

How a Membrane Bioreactor is Used to Treat Landfill Leachate

In principle, a membrane bioreactor combines biological treatment with a separation process using microfiltration membranes. A Membrane Bioreactor consists of a reactor tank and a microfiltration unit. In the reactor, the micro-organisms (mostly bacteria) transform dissolved polluted matter into biomass, and ammoniacal nitrogen (“ammonia”) into nitrate. Thus biodegradable organic pollutants are eliminated by the bioreactor […]

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 […]

How Do You Treat Leachate?

First of all when asked the question, “How Do You Treat Leachate?”, we would like to make a distinction between true treatment which involves converting environmentally damaging substances to less, or non-toxic, ones, and simply concentrating the contaminants from the water in leachate to give a volume reduction. In the water industry both are known as […]

Anaerobic Digestion of Landfill Leachate for Energy Generation: Pipe-Dream or an Opportunity?

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 […]
