In Malaysia a waste management company operates a landfill for the disposal of residual materials from several waste management companies. Due to the wide range and high degree of contamination of the leachate of this landfill is very complex and difficult to treat. The high concentrations of salts and nitrogenous organic compounds are expecting to be increased due to the increase of waste production and can only be oxidized or eliminated by combining different process steps.
