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

Application Parameters:

Jefferson Davis Landfill Design Criteria Table.jpg

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.
