UV DISINFECTION AND LANDFILL LEACHATE

Landfill leachate consisting of the 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 poses a treatment challenge, due to its highly variable consistency, toxins, and geological challenges related to the landfill locations around the world.

As a result, the treatment of landfill leachate can become costly, as adding additional chemicals is not an option, and in most treatment requirements, it has to leave from almost none to zero residues. Therefore, UV disinfection has become 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’s medium-pressure ULTRATRON™ series releases higher energy wavelengths, becoming able to destroy a variety of compounds. ULTRAAQUA UV AOP utilizes photochemical reactions that generate OH-radicals in water to degrade 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.
