Ethanol addition as a strategy for start-up and acclimation of an AnSBBR for the treatment of landfill leachate
This study evaluated the ethanol addition as a strategy for start-up and acclimation of a pilot scale (1300 L) anaerobic sequencing batch biofilm reactor (AnSBBR) for the treatment of municipal landfill leachate with ...
Comparison of the adsorptive action of hydrotalcite, Moringa oleifera and activated carbon in the treatment of landfill leachate
Landfill leachate is formed by organic and inorganic toxic compounds. It has high salt concentration and pathogenic organisms that can cause environmental harm. Hydrotalcite, activated carbon and Moringa oleifera seeds ...
Kinetic studies of urban solid residues and leachate from sanitary landfill
Urban solid residues are constituted of food remaining, grass leaves, fruit peelings, paper, cardboard, rubber, plastic, etc. The organic fraction formed represents about 50% during the decomposition yields biogas and ...
Identification and assessment of water pollution as a consequence of a leachate plume migration from a municipal landfill site (Tucumán, Argentina)
Landfills constitute potential sources of different pollutants that could generate human health and environmental problems. While some landfills currently work under the protection of a bottom liner with leachate collection, ...
Analysis of leaks from geomembrane in a sanitary landfill through models of electrical resistivity tomography in South Brazil
Landfills are the main destination of solid waste generated in Brazil. Based on technical criteria, the construction of a landfill aims to minimize environmental impacts since it can present problems of high complexity. ...
Evaluation of the sensitivity and production of flowers in tagetes erecta l. Exposed to high doses of sodium from irrigation with landfill leachates
(Islamic Azad University, 2021-02)
Purpose Reuse of landfill leachate is an effective alternative for their nutrients to mitigate decrease in freshwater. On the other hand, the growth of vegetation in the final disposal areas provides many benefits such as ...
Electrodegradation of landfill leachate in a flow electrochemical reactor
(Pergamon-elsevier Science LtdOxfordInglaterra, 2005)
Relation between kinetic parameters for reactions of organic matter degradation in waste environmental matrix
The organic fraction of urban solid residues disposed of in sanitary landfills during the decomposition yields biogas and leachate, which are sources of pollution. Leachate is a resultant liquid from the decomposition of ...
Characterization of leachate produced by a landfill and its influence on a sewage treatment plant
Although landfills are generally an environmentally safe option for the disposal of solid waste, the treatment and management of landfill leachate are still critical. The aim of this work was to study through physical-chemical ...
