This course provides an overview on landfill leachate characteristics, available treatment technologies, permitting and design approach, and landfill leachate treatment case projects for the leachate treatment systems. The characteristics of landfill leachate from non-hazardous municipal and industrial landfills will be reviewed as the basis for developing treatment strategies. Classification and concentration ranges of impurities in landfill leachate of young, medium, and old landfills will be discussed. The available treatment processes which involve individual unit operations, as well as integrated systems of physical, chemical, and biological treatment will be reviewed. The design and permitting approach for the design of a leachate treatment system including the sampling parameters and procedures, data analysis, relevant regulations as well as case projects of leachate treatment will be discussed.
This course aims to provide a basic overview of the landfill leachate characteristics, available treatment technologies, design and permitting approach and case projects for leachate treatment systems. This will include coverage of landfill leachate general characteristics and variations by time and the process overview and environmental issues with each of unit process/technologies available for leachate treatment. The course will also highlight the relevant regulations, sampling parameters and procedures for leachate, data analysis and validation. This course will also describe and detail four case projects of landfill leachate treatment design.
Who Should Attend:
1. Engineering professionals (Civil, Environmental, Process, and Chemical engineers).
2. Technologists and landfill operators.
3. Landfill owners.
4. Government agencies.
5. Anyone in the solid waste/wastewater industry can attend and no previous experience/background is required.
