Impact/Purpose:

provide information

Description:

Studies have heen completed on treating a leachate from New Lyme, Ohio. The leachate was transported to Cincinnati, Ohio, where a pilot-sized rotating biological contactor (RBC) was used for a treatment evaluation. he biomass was developed on the ARC discs with primary effluent from the City of Cincinnati's Mill Creek Sewage Treatment Facility. xperiments were then conducted to determine the effectiveness of treating a hazardous waste leachate and to provide information on the following: he rate of organics removal;the final effluent quality; the fate of priority pollutants and specific organic compounds; the loss of volatiles via stripping in the ABC. his paper reports on the results from these experiments and the applicability of an ARC to treat a hazardous waste leachate from a Superfund site.
