Project: bioFAS™ MBBR Treatment Process for Texas Landfill Leachate
Industry: Landfill Leachate
Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal
Nitrification of Ammonia
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.
