Leachate generation from solid waste landfills is a major problem for municipal councils. Leachate contains large amounts of organic and inorganic contaminants and if not controlled can cause severe environmental impact.
Most current treatment technologies for leachate are either biological, physical/chemical, or a combination of both. Determining the most appropriate and cost-effective process technology for a particular leachate is a challenge as many wastewater treatment suppliers and contractors are (naturally) biased towards their own technology or incentivised to recommend only certain process technologies.
With Leachate recognised as one of the most problematic, variable, and difficult to treat type wastewaters, transferring this risk to a trusted and experienced specialist solutions provider is the ideal solution.
