    Assessment of Municipal Solid Waste Landfill Leachate Treatment Efficiency by Leachate Pollution Index Barjinder Bhalla1*, M.S. Saini2, M.K. Jha3 Scientist C, Pushpa Gujral Science City, Kapurthala, Punjab, India1 Director, Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Ludhiana, Punjab, India 2Author: Barjinder Bhalla, M.S. Saini, M.K. Jha. The development of landfill leachate treatment technologies in Sweden may, somewhat simplified, be defined by five different main tendencies: • A co-treatment with municipal wastewater in a “classic” treat-ment facility; • Different treatment options based on “simple” File Size: KB. The leachate collection system's job is to direct the leachate to collection sumps so it can be properly removed from the landfill. The leachate collection system is designed with a minimum 2 percent slope to drain to collection sumps. A leachate collection sump consists of an HDPE riser and submersible pump. 2. Approach for Landfill Leachate Treatment Conventional treatments of landfill leachate mainly comprise the transfer method, and biological, chemical and physical approaches [7,8]. Leachate transfer is an indirect treating approach, in which a piping system is built into the landfill site, to transfer leachate to a local sewage plant for treatment.

    Landfill leachate. Leachate from a landfill varies widely in composition depending on the age of the landfill and the type of waste that it contains. It usually contains both dissolved and suspended material. The generation of leachate is caused principally by precipitation percolating through waste deposited in a landfill. Once in contact with decomposing solid waste, the percolating water.

Acute and Genetic Toxicity of Municipal Landfill Leachate by K. W. Brown Download PDF EPUB FB2

The large number of municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills and the many hazardous materials which they contain pose a serious environmental threat to our groundwater reserves. The present study was conducted to assess the environmental hazards that four MSW landfill leachates pose to the groundwater.

Genetic toxicities of the landfill leachate and groundwater samples were assessed Cited by: Genetic toxicities of the landfill leachate and groundwater samples were assessed using the Salmonella/microsome (Ames test) mutagenicity bioassay, the Bacillus subtilis DNA repair bioassay, and the diploid Aspergillus nidulans chromosome damage bioassay.

Acute toxicities of the leachate samples were assessed using the Microtox test. The results of the acute and genetic toxicity bioassays, combined with the chemical analyses and associated cancer risk assessment clearly showed that leachate from municipal solid waste landfills is just as toxic as that which leaches from landfills where.

Due to its high toxicity, landfill leachate is a major threat for aquifer and surface water health status (Bulc, ). The exact chemical composition of landfill leachate depends on waste composition, climatic conditions, and the age and degradation rate of the solid waste (Bulc, ).

Combined treatment of landfill leachate and municipal wastewater was performed in order to investigate the changes of leachate toxicity during biological treatment. Three laboratory A2O lab-scale reactors were operating under the same parameters (Q–10 L/d; HRT– d; MLSS – g/L) except for the influent characteristic and by: Schrab, G.E., Brown, K.W.

In the present article, the efficiency of biological treatment of landfill leachates was evaluated by implementation of physicochemical characterisation and a complex toxicity assessment.

Mittal leachate from MSW landfill can leachate toxicity zAcute toxicity (LC50) of leachate was determined using static 96 h fish bioassay. In the present study, leachate toxicity of a municipal solid waste landfill located in the Sinos River Valley region (southern Brazil) was evaluated using plant bioassays.

Leachate toxicity was assessed by analysis of seed germination and root elongation of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) and rocket plant (Eruca sativa Mill.) and root elongation.

Because the landfill was established in the s and closed inmany compounds detected in the leachate plume were likely disposed of decades ago. These results indicate the potential for long-term persistence and transport of some emerging contaminants in ground water.

Many municipal treatment plants cannot accept landfill leachate due to trea tment or discharge constraints. In addition to waste water treatment facility constraints, trucking large volumes of leachate may not be practical.

Because of this, treatment efficiency of conventional biological plant for landfill leachates is usually very low. The purpose of our research work was to evaluate the quality of the leachate originating from municipal landfill and to assess efficiency of air stripping and adsorption to activated carbon for reduction of toxicity of the : M.

Cotman, A. Žgajnar-Gotvajn. There is limited information on the toxicity of landfill leachate on somatic tissues and organs of mammals. The hepatotoxic and nephrotoxic effects of leachates from Olusosun and Aba-Eku landfills in Southwestern Nigeria in Wistar albino rats were investigated.

Rats orally exposed to 1 – 25 % concentrations of each of the test leachates were examined for clinical signs of toxicity and body. Four ecotoxicological assays were used to asses the toxicity of a raw landfill leachate and a mixture of a raw landfill leachate and effluent coming from traditional wastewater treatment plant.

All tested organism indicated that both samples exceeded the legal threshold value, showing the ineffectiveness of activated sludge treatment in the Cited by: 5. (leachate), and gas phase (CO 2, CH 4).

Solid waste disposed of in landfills will go through several stages of decomposition, are eventually result in the liquid at the bottom of the landfill leachate.

In Khulna city, municipal solid waste is dumped in the Rajbandh landfill site where large amount of leachate is produced every day. This leachate is pretreated by anaerobic process in a pond and pumped out to the surface water from three wells.

This pretreated leachate has great impact on surrounding surface water and environment. Landfill leachate can contain a wide variety of inorganic chemicals, such as toxic metals, and organic compounds, such as industrial solvents, depending on what was disposed of in the landfill.

Leachate that discharges from a landfill can vary greatly with time. USGS scientists and their colleagues found elevated concentrations of dissolved.
