Leachate Treatment

Landfill leachate is defined as all water that has been in contact with waste stored in a landfill. It arises primarily as rainwater seeps through the landfill body, but also from the moisture inherent to the waste itself or – in the case of inadequately sealed landfills – groundwater ingression. It is caught in the drainage system and undergoes special wastewater treatment. Depending on the substances present, appropriate wastewater technology must be employed.
