Our leachate fact sheets are based upon research carried out for the UK Department of Environment in the mid-1990s, updated and presented in bite-sized documents.
Designed as reference sources for leachate treatment scientists, regulatory bodies, and interested owners of landfill sites, these Fact Files come complete with a full reference list of the original information sources, for those seeking to do further studies into the subject.
In this Fact File we cover a very important water contaminant which
has been very controversial, and still does concern very many people.
Although, this Fact File has been specifically created with the leachate
management/ water quality specialist in mind, it contains much
information which is relevant to the assessment of PCB hazards in any
water body, and the environment generally.
