A Case Study in Leachate Scale Removal

A "Big 3" Landfill - United States

CUSTOMER: 

 

MSW Landfill - Midwest United States

 

 

PROBLEM:

 

Aluminum dross creating accelerated heat in leachate creating havoc on force mains, pumps, gravity lines and more.

 

 

SOLUTION:

 

A landfill located in the U.S. Midwest was starting to experience severe leachate scale formation site-wide. This was due to a key variable for leachate formation (heat); created by a large quantity of aluminum dross that entered the landfill. GII Scale Control was able to analyze the leachate samples and the site layout dynamics to come up with a customized leachate scale removal solution. that has removed a severe leachate scale formation issue.

 

By December 2017, the site's most severe leachate scale formation issue was resolved and the site had gone from a single test Leachate Scale Control System  to 22 active systems on site. The leachate is flowing freely.
