One of the most convenient methods for leachate control is to treat landfill leachates with domestic wastewaters. In this framework, a two-stage treatment system including anaerobic pre-treatment combined with a chemical post-treatment system such as ammonia stripping and/or Magnesium Ammonium Phosphate (MAP) precipitation can be comparable with a(More)
A two-stage treatment system including upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor pre-treatment combined with a chemical post treatment system such as magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP) precipitation was proposed as a comparable alternative to conventional biological treatment. In this study, anaerobically pre-treated domestic wastewater, domestic wastewater(More)
This study examined the determination of BOD in landfill leachates by dilution (D-method) and manometric methods (M-method). The differences in results were discussed based on statistical tests. The effects of sample dilution, seeding, chloride and total Kjeldahl nitrogen (TKN) level were examined. The M-method was found to be more sensitive to increases in(More)
This study examined the determination of BOD in landfill leachates by dilution (D-Method) and manometric methods (M-Method). The discrepancies between these methods were discussed and statistical tests were carried out. The effects of sample dilution and seeding on BOD results were examined. In comparison to the D-Method the M-Method was found to be more(More)
