Treatment of Landfill Leachate by Biologically Active Carbon Adsorbers

In this chapter we essentially deal with the application of bioactive adsorbers for treatment of two different leachates. A bioadsorber model developed for Kim and pirbazari7 has been used for performance simulation of plug flow fixed-bed (PFFB) and recycle fluidized-bed (RFB) adsorbers. The biological parameters necessary for model simulation have been obtained from laboratory-scale biokinetic experiments.
