PFAS in Landfill Leachate Pilot Study

Conducted a PFAS in landfill leachate pilot study.


Determine what technologies would be required to reduce contaminants in the leachate from an inactive landfill to below Michigan Part 31, Rule 57 surface water criteria.
Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Ammonia, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Trenton, MI


  • Power generation and distribution for all components
  • Equipment fueling
  • External hose and piping connections
  • Crane services for unloading customer equipment
  • Weekly and on-call O&M visits
  • Containerization and disposal of concentrated liquid PFAS containing waste from customer provided components
  • Containerization, waste characterization, and disposal of spent AIX resin and GAC


Global designed, installed, and operated an autonomous break-point chlorination system to reduce H2S, ammonia, and suspended solids prior to pumping the pre-treated leachate to a customer-provided PFAS reduction system. Global also provided a 5 cubic foot anion exchange (AIX) resin bed as well as a 7 cubic foot granular activated carbon (GAC) vessel for final PFAS polishing and color removal after the customer provided components.
