  • What are the treatment options for landfill leachate?

    New contributor to Water/Waste Processing aims to answer readers’ most pressing questions It’s said the United States has 1,654 landfills, handling more than 250-million tons of trash each year. One Washington landfill covers a 2,545-acre area, has a 120-million-ton capacity and a 40-year expected trash-receiving life. The facility, the Republic ...


  • Modeling Leachate Contamination and Remediation of Groundwater at a Landfill Site

    Leachate contamination of an aquifer from a landfill sitewas simulated using the groundwater flow and transport model SUTRA developed by the U.S. Geological Survey. The model calibration was performed by spatially adjusting the hydraulic conductivity in order to capture the measured hydraulic head spatial variation and then by adjusting the dispersivity and porosity match the measured chloride ...

  • AutoPumps Manage Landfill Leachate to Keep Methane Flowing - Case Study

    Green Bay adds Gas-to-Energy Facility to 30-year-old Landfil Brown County East Landfill in Green Bay, Wisconsin recently completed a feasibility study that determined it would be economically sound to convert methane gas into electrical energy by electric generators to the site. Two new Cat 3516A+ engines are projected to come on line in December of this year, housed in a new 30 x 100 ...

  • Leachate Monitoring Alarm System

    A Major Waste-Disposal Operator, Sept 2008 - ongoing Leachate Monitoring at Landfill Site near Reading Design and installation of a GSM-based telemetry system for monitoring leachate level and pumping rates at 5 no. boreholes. An ATEX certified intrinsically-safe depth pressure transmitter was selected due to the presence of explosive gases at the site. A ...

  • Leachate Collection & Removal Systems – Pump Stations

    Romtec Utilities designs and supplies pump stations for many different types of applications, including leachate collection and removal systems. Leachate pump stations are required whenever water passes through a bed of solids and extracts contaminating elements. The most common scenario for collecting and pumping leachate is for landfills, but there are industrial ...

  • Landfill Leachate Treatment by Forced Circulation Vacuum Evaporation - Athens (Ano Liossia Landfill)

    This report describes how treatment of landfill leachate by means of forced circulation vacuum evaporation provided: an environmental benefit from use of biogas as power supply a big saving in disposal cost due to waste volume reduction a return on investment of less than two years Introduction Solid Waste Management in Greece has been remarkably upgraded during the last ...

  • Case Study, Colnbrook Leachate Plant.

    Triangle Ltd was contracted in 2008 by Biffa Waste Services at Colnbrook, Heathrow to resolve the problem of the landfill leachate borehole pumping system failing to deliver acceptable volumes to the SBR leachate plant. Initially they were achieving a maximum of 110m³/month during the fill/aerate treatment ...

  • Inox in a landfill

    For collection and transport of leachate, landfill sites are using various types of pumps. Grindex electrical corrosion resistant pumps provide the volume needed where pneumatic pumps and other submersibles pumps fall short. One of the landfills in Illinois has 18 Grindex corrosion resistant pumps in operation and they now have plans to replace all remaining submersibles with Grindex INOX pumps. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Raffen landfill site, Cork, Ireland

    AFS were awarded a contract to design a gas and leachate collection system, and carry out a 10-week gas pumping trial to evaluate the levels of gas being generated from Raffen Landfill Site. From the pumping trial data, a 200m3/hr HT flare was designed, built and installed. A hydrovane compressor/receiver/dryer package was installed to operate ten pneumatic leachate extraction pumps. Within ...

  • Predicting the site water balance of a phytocapped landfill using HYDRUS 1D

    An alternative landfill capping technique called 'Phytocapping' was trialled in Rockhampton, Australia. In this technique, trees were used as 'bio-pumps' and 'rainfall interceptors' and soil cover as the 'storage' of water. The performance of this system was measured based on its ability to minimise water percolation into waste. The percolation rate was modelled using HYDRUS 1D for two main ...

  • EPG Systems At Work

    In Mississippi, a landfill had seven leachate sumps, serving forty acres. A sideslope riser design was being utilized with a variety of pumps and control systems spread over a large footprint requiring thousands of feet of conduit and wire. Over time, as pumps failed, a variety of types and brands of pumps were used including water well-type submersibles and grinder pumps. Electrical control ...
