Landfill Leachate

You manage the world's waste; we'll help you keep it from impacting the world's water.

Helping landfills better manage their leachate.

Leachate can be nasty stuff. We can equip you with proven, easy-to-use technologies to keep it at bay. Whether you need to meet your municipal treatment plant’s requirements or the toughest environmental discharge permits, we have the solution.

Get your dissolved oxygen more efficiently, more serviceably, more durably.

If you’ve got old existing aeration basins, let us help you make it work harder for you, rather than you working harder for it. How?

  • Our Matrix Plus membranes last longer, particularly in harsh meat processing wastewater, and help keep your system operating at its peak.
  • Our FlexAir diffusers optimize your air distribution to maximize your dissolved oxygen.
  • Our ModuleAir configurations offer access to your diffusers, even those at the bottom of a full basin.
  • Turn your existing activated sludge plant into a more efficient, reliable, and simpler system with BioPorts IFAS.

Not all aerated basins are created equal. Don’t replace your aeration without considering whether your system could work harder, more reliably, with less cost.

Look Inside

FlexAir aeration comes in many forms, including disc, tube, panel, or even Streamline which integrates the diffuser into your piping for ultimate efficiency.

Did you know?

Membranes come into direct contact with wastewater’s harshest contaminants, and choosing the right material can be the difference between a system that lasts a month or a decade.

Case Study

More than a decade ago, Leprino Foods, globally one of the largest mozzarella makers, started taking EDI up on our Aeration for life™ promise.

Keeping things equalized

Unless you’ve reached a scale of production that ensures your using the same amount of water, for the same purposes, every day, chances are an equalization tank can help. By holding and mixing several days’ or weeks’ water in the tank, you can bring down the peaks that cause the biggest surcharges from your municipal plant or cause bigger issues for your existing wastewater infrastructure thanks to feast and famine conditions.

The aeration in an equalization tank is not about treatment; its about mixing the wastewater, keeping solids from settling, and ensuring subsequent treatment process don’t get overloaded one day and starved the next. This is where EDI’s CoarsAir coarse bubble shines; by providing superior mixing with the minimum in maintenance, it’ll keep your equalization tank mixed 

Look Inside

CoarsAir mixing comes in multiple forms, including our stainless Max, Wide-Band, Flex Cap, and Hex, so you’ll get the configuration that fits your needs and budget.

Did you know?

CoarsAir mixing can extend the life of your system by equalizing solids and loading and preventing sludge buildup.

Ready for your high-strength, highly-variable BOD, COD, and ammonia

The high levels of ammonia, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), or Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) in your leachate can be poisonous to receiving waterways or overload a municipal plant used to mostly household waste streams.

But high-strength and even highly-variable wastewater is no match for the BioPorts MBBR. It has a small, flexible footprint, so you won’t have a problem fitting it into your water treatment infrastructure, and it works by retaining more of the bacteria that treats the wastewater by growing it on plastic media retained within the basin, rather than just letting that bacteria wash out of the system with the cleaned water. (It also makes your aeration more efficient by breaking up the bubbles as they rise, and typically enables you to use low-maintenance coarse bubble aeration.)

Look Inside

BioPorts MBBR media has a proprietary design that maximizes durability and protected surfaces.

Did you know?

Because the BioPorts media breaks up bubbles, low-maintenance coarse bubble aeration gets fine-bubble-level oxygen transfer efficiencies.

Case Study

At Seneca Landfill, BioPorts MBBR reactors enabled the site to dramatically reduce it’s highly-variable ammonia concentration limits, while the site produces enough green energy to heat over 27,000 homes.

Even in freezing water, you can treat ammonia to <1 mg/L

In cold climates where leachate may reach temperatures as low a 1ºC (34ºF), most traditional forms of treatment slow down to a crawl, meaning you either have to store your leachate through the winter or risk surcharges, fines, even an ecological and P.R. nightmare. Unless you have a SAGR for leachate treatment.

You can treat ammonia to <1 mg/L and polish BOD/COD to <10 mg/L in near-frozen water with a SAGR. It achieves this impressive feat by using the time when the water is warm to pre-grow the necessary bacteria that will treat the water when its cold. No more storing through winter, and you’ll sleep easy without worries about surcharges, fines, or worse.

Look inside

SAGRs strategically route loading to different areas in the bed when the water is warm, to grow the needed biomass to fully treat the loading when it gets cold.

Did you know?

There are over 100 full-scale SAGR installations across North America, some more than a decade old.

Case Study

When one Northern Ontario gold mine needed a way to discharge year-round, they wanted to be extra-sure the SAGR could handle its wastewater profile…
