Landfill leachate is water that has travelled through landfill sites and typically contains a variety of unwanted contaminants, both suspended (visible) and dissolved matter. These contaminants can be dangerous and pose a risk to the environment. For the leachate to be safely discharged, these contaminants must be safely removed or considerably reduced.
Different kinds of landfill will contain different contaminants. Jacobi’s technical experts can help you find the ideal grade of activated carbon to treat the type of landfill leachate you are dealing with. The carbon will come from our AquaSorb™ range which can reduce the following:
- Organic matter (COD)
- PFAS (Per-fluorinated alkylated substances)
- Toxic compounds
- Other contaminants
