Landfill and Compost Leachate Treatment
Integrating Anaerobic Digestion with Landfills and Composting Operations
New regulations banning the disposal of organic wastes in landfills aims to divert more waste to composting operations and anaerobic digesters. If you currently own and operate a landfill or composting operation, now is a good time to consider adding an onsite digester to your facility so you can capture revenue from both tip fees and renewable energy.
- A landfill is basically an inefficient anaerobic digester. If your facility is already capturing landfill gas to run generators, you can boost your electricity revenues by generating high-quality biogas from digesting organic waste in a BioEliminator™.
- Capture valuable tip fees from organic waste haulers by continuing to accept organics once bans go into effect instead of losing market share to other facilities.
- Use the microbe-rich greywater effluent from the BioEliminator™ to keep the landfill moist, further boosting landfill gas production.
- Use our NCWR to treat landfill leachate and reduce your surcharges and disposal costs. See our recent blog post about a successful demonstration we completed.
