Multi-stage Treatment of Landfill Leachate 2

DOWNLOAD CASE STUDY

Background

Due to the nature of leachate and more stringent environmental legislation that prohibits the discharge of this wastewater into a sewer network or nearby river/lake, a waste treatment company located in a Scandinavian region has decided to explore the most suitable treatment options available on the market.

Customer Trial

A two-week on-site trial and feasibility study was completed, using one of the PCI’s reverse osmosis membranes: AFC99, a polyamide thin film composite membrane and a BRO/BUF pilot testing unit. Then all process and laboratory data collected during the trial was analysed in order to understand if the client requirements were being satisfied, a full-scale plant design and the capital and operational expenditure costs were also calculated.
