Abstract [en]

Ten columns made of PVC tubes with an internal diameter of 9.8 cm were filled with substrate to a height of 50 cm. Two types of leachate water from a landfill in Sö­dertälje, Sweden, were pumped to the columns with a load of 528 L/m2/day during four months. Five columns filled with different substrates received leachate from the ash deposit at the landfill. The remaining five columns received a mixed leachate from the whole landfill area. Both unsaturated and saturated conditions were used for pairs of columns with identical sub­strate. The metal sorption capacity was investi­gated. Columns filled with Polonite® (product from opoka) showed best overall performance. Highest average removal efficiency was obtained by fine-grained Polonite mixed with peat where Co, Cr, Cu, Zn and Mn were removed by 10, 12, 31, 45 and 99%, respectively. High removal efficiencies for all metals can only be obtained with multi-substrate filters, having metal specific sorption capacities.
