Leachate Solutions has introduced what it describes as a more up to date alternative process for the removal of dissolved methane and CO2 from water and leachate.
The approach has been designed and developed over a period of eight years and uses alternative technologies to provide a modern solution and an end to the 24/7 aeration system.
The firm’s systems are already in use on multiple sites across the Northwest
Older air stripped systems are now nearing the end of their useful life and are beginning to fail to meet current regulatory and environmental standards, says the firm. They are bulky, costly to operate and require a high level of maintenance.
The system form Leachate Solutions has the advantage of being cost effective, with reductions in operational costs, maintenance costs, maintenance downtime, and whole-of-life costs.
It is also highly efficient, with built in back-ups that ensure these systems remain operational. The system is fully automated, and results in reduced sludge production and calcification.
Another advantage is greener engineering, including low energy requirements since the system has an efficient design and a small carbon footprint.
It operates on demand, and incorporates failover systems that reduce any possible negative environmental impact. It is built with 316 stainless steel and minimal plastic.
True flexibility is also offered, since the systems are tailor-made to site requirements, and available as a self-contained unit for permanent installation or as a mobile unit, with scalability to meet a variety of needs.
It has a small physical footprint (down to 3m x 1m), and it can be integrated with existing plant and equipment.
