Apart from the MBR process, Berghof tubular UF membranes can be used for leachate treatment as a direct filtration step. The treatment is typically followed by nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, or activated carbon adsorption. This is a cost-efficient approach for small capacity installations where a simpler treatment scheme with lower capital costs is preferred. Also for certain sites such as the construction and demolition landfills or the hazardous waste landfills, where the leachate presents very low biodegradability. Here the physical-chemical processes are more efficient for removing the target contaminants.
Berghof tubular UF membranes remove the particles, colloids, and macromolecules. The previously mentioned advantages for Berghof tubular MBR are also applicable in this application: minimum footprint, superior effluent quality, robustness, flexibility, ease of operation/maintenance and flexibility make the Berghof tubular UF the best choice when dealing with landfill leachate treatment in direct UF configuration.
In certain cases, the tubular UF is coupled to a chemical precipitation process for increasing the removal of heavy metals. The chemical resistant CR membranes from Berghof have been especially developed to operate in a wider range of pH and are the most suitable product for the integrated chemical precipitation and UF process.
For non-biodegradable leachate or in small landfill sites, tubular modules are applied in direct filtration mode for removing the suspended solids, colloids and macromolecules. In certain cases, such as the hazardous waste landfills, a chemical precipitation process is applied before the UF for removing the heavy metals. The UF permeate is afterwards polished with NF, RO or activated carbon for achieving the quality required for discharge or reuse.
