Our aim is to develop an automated leachate treatment system including a novel electrolytic cell that will be integrated into an automated system to treat leachate from landfill sites. It will be a mobile, modular unit that can be easily transported from site to site and used as required, and will have a small footprint that will enable its placement in areas where the larger solutions to landfill leachate are unable to be placed. The result will be a unit that can treat landfill leachate to the point where it complies with the regulations on wastewater discharge into municipal sewage systems. However, in order to achieve this objective, there are a number of limitations faced by existing technology that we must overcome:
