Landfill Leachate Treatment Specialists

Finding a better way

Innovation and creative thinking have led to new options for the management of leachate and industrial wastewater streams through the use of NATURAL SYSTEMS such as phytoremediation (phyto-utilization) and engineered wetlands. Phyto-utilization systems use specifically selected, fast-growing plants that have a great demand for moisture and nutrients (contaminants in leachate) utilize (consume) leachate on-site as a resource in a plant-based system rather than hauling away and disposing as a waste, often resulting in a ‘zero-discharge’ system.

  • We are planning to evaluate this technology for numerous other landfills and expect the industry as a whole to embrace this new leachate utilization tool.

    Midwest Area Environmental Manager, Republic Services

  • The (phytoremediation) system has the potential to be a game changer for leachate management.

    Senior Corporate Manager of Engineering, Republic Services

  • “Phytoremediation (or Phyto-Irrigation) should be seriously considered by any landfill operation that is contemplating alternative methods for reducing it’s carbon footprint while cost-effectively managing leachate volumes.”

    Landfill Operations Manager, Top 5 US Company

  • “I think this is great for the company and I think we’re going to be looking at doing a lot more of these projects in the future.”

    Hydrogeology Manager, Republic Services

  • “The phytoremediation leachate treatment system at our landfill has allowed us to treat (utilize) 100% of the leachate that used to be trucked off site. This resulted in a "green" way to treat our leachate with a huge savings for our company as an added bonus”

    Environmental Manager, Republic Services

  • It has been a real pleasure to work side by side with you the past several years. I hope that our paths cross soon for another successful, innovative project.

BORON is BAD for PHYTO-UTILIZATION SYSTEMS….or, at least it USED to be!

Leachate Treatment with Hybrid Poplar | Leachate Management Specialists

Boron has always been a potential ‘Fatal Flaw’ when it comes to phytoremediation projects because it has a very narrow acceptable range as a plant nutrient, and excess is very difficult to remove. However, through a creative, interdisciplinary approach, Leachate Management Specialists (LMS) has developed an efficient and cost-effective removal process that has effectively eliminated boron as a fatal flaw of the technology.
