Ammonia & BOD Reduced By More Than 50%  

Golden triangle landfill - Texas


Project: bioFAS™ MBBR Treatment Process for Texas Landfill Leachate

Industry: Landfill Leachate


  • Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal
  • Nitrification of Ammonia

Application Parameters:

Problem: Golden Triangle Landfill was experiencing high concentrations of ammonia and BOD in the leachate from their domestic landfill. 


Phase 1: bioprocessH2O supplied a two-stage bioFAS MBBR biological treatment process designed for BOD reduction and nitrification of ammonia. The installation allowed the landfill to meet the new regulations as well as plan for expansion. 

Phase 2: Increased the system's nitrifcation of ammonia capacity with the addition of a third bioFAS MBBR Bioreactor operating in series. 

Status/Results: The bioFAS™ MBBR System effectively biodegrades the BOD and nitrifies ammonia to compliance standards for direct discharge.
