As a result of increasingly stringent discharge standards, a growing number of wastewater treatment plant managers are either refusing to treat landfill leachate or requiring that leachate be pretreated before being discharged to their facilities. Fortunately, a number of treatment processes are available to the landfill manager for on-site leachate treatment. The purpose of this course is to provide landfill managers with an overview of the conventional and advanced treatment processes, including new membrane based systems that can be utilized for on-site leachate treatment
This 1-day course provides a focus on the state of commercialization, costs, benefits and risks of
