Various treatment processes were evaluated for their applicability and effectiveness in treating leachate from hazardous waste land disposal facilities. These technologies include activated sludge treatment, air stripping, carbon adsorption, flow equalization, granular media filtration, ion exchange, neutralization, oxidation/reduction, powdered activated carbon treatment, precipitation/flocculation, reverse osmosis, rotating biological contactor, sedimentation, sequencing batch reactor, steam stripping, trickling filter, ultrafiltration, and wet-air oxidation. Information is also given on the formation and composition of leachate, treatability of leachate constituents, and treatment process train selection.
