This course will build on the concepts in Leachate Courses 101 and 201, where the basics of leachate generation, regulations, and treatment and disposal were covered. Leachate Treatment Technologies will provide an in-depth dive into physical-chemical and biological treatment systems for both active and passive treatment approaches, including aerobic and anaerobic processes.
