landfill leachate bioremediation Articles

  • Improving bioremediation

    Sustainability is becoming a benchmark for the quality of companies who offer remediation solutions, the technologies that they develop and offer commercially, as well as the entire projects where they are used. It is, in essence, not something that can be simply ignored in the months and years ahead if standards are to continue to improve, says Tom Hayes of Ecologia. The sustainability ...

  • Field Demonstration of a Permeable Bioreactive Barrier for Leachate Control.

    ABSTRACT: A biostimulation technique was selected for a pilot study to treat groundwater at a former New Jersey municipal landfill. The process will address a mixture of chlorinated compounds (e.g. vinyl chloride and chlorobenzene), hydrocarbons (e.g. benzene and methyl ethyl ketone) and heavy metals. The reactive barrier will be constructed using a series of injection points to implace a slurry ...

  • Environmental Sensors in Waste Management

    Issue: As part of an increasing sentiment among European consumers that environmental protection is important, concern about the impact of landfill is growing. Sensor technology makes it possible to measure and control inputs to landfill sites and pollutants arising from them. However, the exploitation - or uptake - of such technology has been lower than expected in the waste management sector. ...


  • Treating wastewater as a resource

    A number of UK landfill operators are turning wastewater into a resource by utilising OTT monitoring and control systems to manage the irrigation of Willow crops (for renewable energy generation) with pre-treated effluent. Background Leachate from landfill sites represents a significant potential environmental liability, extending long into the future after a landfill site has ...

  • Case Study: Arjo Wiggins Factory Site, North Hykeham

    In January 2000, Blackwell were appointed as the main contractor for the remediation of an industrial site in Lincolnshire. The site was formerly used in the manufacture of thermal papers, had become contaminated with metalliferous mercy, zinc and asbestos. Site remediation was primarily driven by high ground water vulnerability. Following a comprehensive option study, volume reduction by Soils ...

  • Vapor-Phase Biofilters Show Promise for Treating High VOC Emissions.

    Evaluating the Feasibility of Natural AttenuationUsing natural attenuation to remediate organic compounds in groundwater has gained popularity. In some cases, this process can reduce contaminant levels to below risk-based corrective action criteria or regulatory standards without implementing additional remedial action alternatives. However, it is often difficult to prove that natural ...
