APATEQ provides leachate treatment system for Sicily’s largest private landfill
- Clean-tech innovator APATEQ has been awarded a multi-million Euro contract for the construction of a leachate treatment system by Sicula Trasporti Srl, owner and operator of Sicily’s largest private landfill.
- The produced effluent meets the prevailing legislation for direct discharge. The water will be re-used for discharge into the environment or irrigation, truck washing and dust control of the landfill’s crushed rock roads.
- APATEQ’s “LeachPaq” combines ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis with innovative process technologies, resulting in considerably lower operating expenses compared to competitor’s offerings.
- The plant will be delivered by end of 2018.
