Leachate Treatment is an Expanding Market with Developing Process
All current sanitary MSW landfills built to modern standards globally
are now lined and capped on completion, of which about ¾ generate leachate requiring removal, and
of those about 50% will require on-site leachate treatment.
We estmate that with rising affluence in the developing nations by 2015
there will be 3,000 - 5,000 large sanitary landfills averaging from 200,000 to 1Million tonnes
per year of waste input annually. That's about 2, 250 to 3,750 supersized landfills globally,
requiring 1,500 to 2,500 sophisticated leachate treatment plants, costing between $1.5 million and
$4 million each (2011 prices).
Smaller landfills are likely to account for at least the same number of
leachate treatment plants again.
While recycling and residual waste diversion for landfill will reduce waste
to landfill in the US and Europe, waste diversion will have little impact on the
industrializing nations as a whole which will contiue to raise the proportion of their
national wastes collected.
