Ovive offers BIOMEMBRAT biological treatment for treating leachates: the process combines low charge biological treatment and separation by ultrafiltration.


This is not a concentration tool, but rather an on-site leachate treatment (and, therefore, a long-term treatment solution), that generally does not result in by-products.

BIOMEMBRAT’s provides scalability, which is important to treating leachates. We can change the type of polishing treatment, the number of membranes, bio tanks, and the membrane floor to constantly adapt to the variation of loadings.

BIOMEMBRAT products include:

  • BIOMEMBRAT BM20 : Biological treatment + Ultrafiltration + Activated carbon -> for low load leachates
  • BIOMEMBRAT BM+: Biological treatment + Ultrafiltration + Nanofiltration + Reclaiming concentrates on activated carbon -> Resulting in low discharge standards without releasing concentrates
  • BIOMEMBRAT BM30: Biological treatment + Ultrafiltration + Reverse osmosis -> For the strictest discharge standards. Providing biological treatment at the beginning of the process results in a concentrate free of ammonia and H2S

Pump-free reverse osmosis


We also offer reverse osmosis technology to treat leachates. This process produces a high-quality permeate and a concentrate containing all of the initial pollution to be discharged in an approved channel.

This kind of treatment involves low volumes (treatment campaign), emergency actions, or treating leachate production peaks.
