Advanced Filtration Dynamic Membrane Technology

CORNCOB advanced filtration dynamic membrane technology can convert nearly any wastewater stream into clean reusable water in a small footprint, Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System (DEWATS). Compared to innovative DEWATS biological processes, such as FMBR, CORNCOB is ideally suited for wastewater streams that are less suitable for biological treatment such as landfill leachate.

Case Study: CORNCOB Landfill Leachate Solution

A medium size municipal landfill in Monroe County, Wisconsin faced the threat of shutdown if it could not solve its growing leachate problem. It’s average daily leachate production was 10,000 gallons per day which was hauled and disposed of offsite 365 days per year.

The Corncob solution provided an onsite landfill leachate treatment & recovery system that recovered clean NPDES permittable water and eliminated the need for offsite hauling and disposal.
