Nitrifying Ammonia to <10 mg/L with a Biological Treatment Process
Jefferson davis republic landfill - louisiana
Project: bioFAS™ MBBR System for Republic Southern Landfill Leachate
Industry: Landfill Leachate
- Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal
- Nitrification of Ammonia
Problem: The Jefferson Davis Republic Landfill was experiencing high concentrations of ammonia in the leachate from their domestic landfill and needed to meet compliance standards for direct discharge.
Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a single stage bioFAS™ Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) biological treatment process to remove ammonia from the aerobic lagoon effluent.
Status/Results: The bioFAS™ MBBR System effectively nitrifies ammonia allowing the landfill to remain in compliance with the effluent discharge requirements.
