Abstract

Landfill leachate is currently a major environmental concern because it contains high concentrationsof organic and inorganic contaminants. Leachate treatment using natural materials, such as aquifersand, peat, and the commercial material BIRM (Burgess Iron Removal Media), was performed throughcolumn experiments. Aquifer sand was taken from Kg Teluk, Kelantan, peat was taken from PeatlandParadise, and BIRM was bought from a supplier. The heavy metals (Fe3+, Cr, Ni, and Cu) from naturalleachate were selected for this experiment. The concentrations of Fe, Cr, Ni, and Cu before theexperiment were 11, 1.27, 4.535, and 3.293 mg L–1, respectively. The physical and chemical parametersof leachate and surface water at the Taman Beringin Landfill have been studied to understand theimpact of pollution in the area. The results show that leachate samples at the bottom of the landfillshave the highest pollution. Both the physical and chemical parameters of leachate exceed the limits ofInterim National Water Quality Standards for Malaysia. Experimental test results were also analyzedin terms of breakthrough curves and percentage of heavy metal removal. The results show that theBIRM sample has a higher adsorption capacity for heavy metals, including Fe, compared with aquifersand and peat.
