This paper describes four pilot studies that were conducted to evaluate the Membrane bioreactor (MBR) process for leachate treatment. Both hollow fiber and cross-flow systems from several vendors were evaluated. One system also includes application of RO following the MBR process as a polishing step. Data from these systems highlight biological performance, capabilities, effluent quality and operational considerations such as membrane flux, fouling and trans-membrane pressure (TMP).
