What is Leachate and effluent?

Leachate waste emerges as a liquid resulting from the infiltration of water through refuse within landfill sites, engaging in chemical reactions with decaying matter along the way.

Within this aqueous concoction lie substantial threats to both public health and environmental integrity, resulting from the microorganisms and hazardous compounds it harbours, which can include ammonia and nitrogen.

Effluent refers to any liquid waste or discharge that flows out from industrial processes, sewage systems, or agricultural activities into the environment.

This can include wastewater from factories, sewage treatment plants, or runoff from agricultural fields containing fertilizers and pesticides.

How are leachate and effluent harmful?

Both leachate and effluent are harmful due to their ability to introduce pollutants into the environment, posing risks to ecosystems, human health, and wildlife. Efforts to properly manage and treat these wastes are essential to minimize their environmental and health impacts.

The impacts leachate and effluent can cause include:


  • Chemical Contamination
  • Toxicity
  • Eutrophication


  • Pollution
