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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
We plan to add a number of leachate software applications to this page over the next few months, which our visitors can download and install, and which will provide solutions to a number of problems experienced by leachate treatment plant operators. Our first two are now available, a handy conversion calculator (see below), and (see right) our Trade Effluent Charges Calculator here.
Ammonia to Ammoniacal Nitrogen “Expressed as N” – Free Conversion Calculator
There are two methods used by analytical laboratories for expressing the quantity of ammonia in contaminated water. The first is that provided bythe majoirty of water quality analytical laboratories when reporting the quality of a polluted water. They provide a weight of ammonia as the weight of the nitrogen (elemental N), “ammoniacal- N” and that is the method used by the Enviroment Agency UK.
However, some water quality labs report the weight of “ammonia”, (ie the whole NH4 molecule) which includes the weight of the hydrogen atoms as well as the nitrogen atoms, and landfill site operators may at times erroneously think that they are closer to their maximum permitted ammoniacal nitrgen strength for discharge, than they really are.
To help landfill operators correct for the difference between the two methods of expressing ammoniacal nitrogen values we devised the software below, which will walk you through how to calculate Ammoniacal-N (ammonia expressed in mg/l as N) concentrations (as used in UK Trade Effluent charging and dicsharge consents and environmental permits).
Get started now using our software, in three steps, as follows:
1. Simply download the zipped file below and unzip it into its own new directory location on your hard drive where you will be able to go back to it later.
2. Double click on the executable file (file extension “.exe”) called “ammonia-converter.exe”, and the software will load up and you can start to use it.
3. Follow the instructions given inside the software program.

This article is to make it easy to have success in selecting the best pipework material for leachate collection systems.
Popular pump types used for leachate extraction and pumping systems is the submersible centrifugal (vortex) type pump, and in particular in the UK the FLYGHT pumps model range.
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
|Be one of the first to buy this fact sheet! It’s the 2nd 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!
