Abstract

Aerobic biological treatment was found to be effective for stabilizing sanitary landfill leachate in a series of laboratory experiments. The best operational conditions were for a detention time of 10 days, which gave mixed liquor volatile suspended solids concentrations of 4,000 mg/l or more in the completely mixed, no-recycle systems. Stabilization of chemical oxygen demand was greater than 97 percent, and biochemical oxygen demand was reduced by more than 99 percent. Mixed liquor settling properties were good, nutrients were removed, and odor was completely removed. Units with detention times of 2 and 5 days failed. Activated carbon was useful for effluent polishing. Physical-chemical treatment of raw leachate was only partially successful.
