Landfill leachate that is runoff rainwater from landfills is full of organic and inorganic materials such as ammonium, phosphorous, sulfate, microplastics, metals, and many more. Over the years the landfill and therefore leachate management has significantly improved, however, in many areas it still presents a treatment challenge, due to its highly variable consistency, toxins, and geological challenges related to the landfill locations around the world.
Due to all the aforementioned reasons, the treatment of landfill leachate can become costly as adding additional chemicals becomes not an option and in most treatment requirements, it has to leave from minimum to 0 residues. UV disinfection therefore has become very much a preferred solution for leachate treatment. Upon removal of total suspended solids (TSS), one of the ways to treat highly contaminated water is by utilizing medium-pressure (MP) or AOP UV technologies.
ULTRAAQUA UV medium-pressure ULTRATRON™ series release higher energy wavelengths being able to destroy a variety of compounds. ULTRAAQUA UV AOP utilizes photochemical reactors that generate OH-radicals in water with the purpose of degrading persistent and toxic chemical compounds. ULTRAAQUA UV offers multiple solutions to not only perform standard disinfection of the water but also destroy complex chemical compounds.Get in touch

Landfill leachate water is notorious for its high toxicity and pollution levels, requiring complex and innovative solutions to battle them. Medium pressure and AOP UV technologies combined with extensive research done in municipal water make ULTRAAQUA UV solutions particularly reliable and resilient.
The water of landfill leachate is one of the most corrosive and contaminated waters found in the world. Upon removal of suspended solids, ULTRAAQUA UV Medium pressure or AOP technologies have much higher disinfection power which has the capacity to eliminate all organic and chemical compounds.
Part of the leachate treatment challenge is that it varies significantly depending on its location. More often than not this means that the same solution will not be suitable for every project. Part of ULTRAAQUA UV success is that it treats each case individually and provides its clients with the most economical disinfection solution tailored for each project.
UV disinfection is physical treatment making it an ideal technology for leachate treatment due to its high level of toxicity. UV disinfection is the most cost-effective solution that does not create any by-products or alter any other water properties, solely performing the break down of dangerous compounds.
