Operation an NHWSF includes treating leachates : meteoric waters passing through waste deposits. Regulatory changes are increasingly leading sites to treat this waste on-site, with ever-growing treatment goals.


With over 100 references in France, we have become, in just 20 years, experts in treating this particular industrial effluent, which has the following characteristics:

  • A continuous evolution in quantity and quality of leachates, according to the life of the site (the type buried waste, the means of operating open surfaces, and the operation and post-operation phases...)
  • An unbalanced effluent with more nitrogen pollution than carbon
  • Various pollutants: arsenic, phenols, metals...

Ovive has a large stock of equipment and operating branches perfectly adapted for this activity.

One of Ovive’s salient missions is to continuously develop facilities and offer treatment solutions over several years or in a campaign.

Treating leachates often involves a combination of technologies that must be assessed at each site. Among these technologies, Ovive offers:
Because the environmental impact of waste management is of the utmost importance to most of our clients and environmental actors, Ovive has commissioned Climat Mundi to prepare a comparison of total greenhouse gases from leachates treatment.
