We enable the landfill industry to have an efficient treatment plant for leachate which secures a water emission that is safe for the environment.
A WWTP designed for landfills
When we developed the technology behind MivaMagTM it was designed for landfills. The treatment process made for treating wastewater from landfills which de-water the leachate at the same time as the pollutants are removed:
The challenges connected to treating leachate
The typical challenge regarding waste water from landfills is an uneven water inflow, a varying quality of and grade of pollution in the water and that the construction of the treatment facility must endure low outside temperatures.
When water is treated through the MivaMagTM the flock mass is converted into sludge with 30 - 40 % dry matter that can be transported in containers.
Results from our leachate treatment
All of these challenges have been solved. The treatment shows reductions of environmental pollutants and heavy metals:
- 50 - 70 % reduction of organic pollutants
- 25 - 95 % reduction of heavy metals
- 80 - 90 % reduction of phosphorus
- 70- 90 % reduction of suspended substances
