Landfill leachate control is an indispensable part of metropolitan solid waste management that forms an integral part of urban infrastructure. To insure the preservation of the ecosystem and public health, leachate generated requires remediation and disposal in an environmentally safe approach. Leachate generation and characteristics depends on the phases of degradation of the waste in a landfill, which follow a sequence of time as well as prevailing environmental conditions. Once contamination occurs remediation of a polluted environment are costly and extremely irrecoverable to its original quality. Leachate treatment systems have been applied to decontaminate the effluent such that it can be disposed of safely into the environment without negative consequence. Although single process treatments are effective for the remediation of pollutants generated in leachate, a combination physico-chemical treatments or physico-chemical and biological process is necessary for an ideal remedy of stabilized landfill leachate. Combined systems are required to attain an efficient removal of NH3-N and COD with a significant measure of biodegradable organic matter.
