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:

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.
