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 […]

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
When designing any leachate management system the assessment of the most economic method for leachate treatment and disposal is heavily dependent upon the flow rate and duration of flow. A high capital cost option such as on site leachate treatment will be worthwhile, but only if the total volume the plant treats daily is sustained […]
Leachate pumps and pumping technologies currently in use in landfills in the UK, and worldwide, are listed and explained.
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.
Leachate extraction embraces landfill site wells and boreholes, pumping systems, plus pipelines, leachate monitoring and control systems.
Leachate recirculation in the form of pumping leachate from the base of a cell back up into the top of the waste has been practised in the past, and continues to be used, at the majority of landfills.
Most landfills still generate leachate, and the first and most obvious action, when leachate starts to appear, is to… Read this to find out more!
