Abstract

Sanitary landfilling is the most common way to eliminate solid urban wastes. An important problem associated to landfills is the production of leachates. Because of its characteristics and because of its occurrence at remote locations, leachate needs to be treated separately from municipal or other wastewater. In this paper, the main technologies for the treatment of leachate from landfills are presented with special attention to hybrid processes, combining biological and physical treatment steps to fulfil the future demand on save, reliable and economic landfill leachate treatment. The technologies shall be grouped according to outlet requirements and inlet pollution load, pointing out the main advantages and disadvantages of each technology. This paper will summarize WEHRLE’s 25 years of experience in treating leachate in Europe, Asia and North Africa.
