First MBR system for landfill leachate treatment in South America

Berghof has announced the first installed MBR system for landfill leachate treatment in South America. The wastewater treatment plant, based upon Berghof Membrane Technology, was successfully commissioned in March 2015 close to the city of Buenos Aires (Argentina) by their customer Nordic Water South America.

Leachate is one of the most difficult effluents to treat. Berghof developed a compact MBR treatment technology using PVDF tubular membranes, being a reliable solution in this purification step.

Berghof has over 200 worldwide references in leachate applications. This project in Argentina represents a milestone in the landfill leachate treatment in South America, delivering the first MBR system in this region. Berghof offered a solution being robust with a minor impact in footprint, which was required by the customer as one of the main challenges.

The Bioflow ultrafiltration system comprises:

  • 5 UF Bioflow skids with each 6 modules
  • Total capacity: 2640 m3/day
  • PVDF tubular membranes, with a diameter of 8 mm
  • FRP modules, with a diameter of 10 inch and a length of 4 m.
