Is non-thermal plasma treatment a viable solution for removing recalcitrant organic compounds from treated landfill leachate?
The distinct color of biologically treated leachate is the result of organic molecules that resist degradation. These organic compounds are usually referred to as recalcitrant or refractory compounds, and are predominantly composed of humic, fulvic, and hydrophilic acids. Residual concentrations of recalcitrant compounds are relatively high in biologically treated leachate effluent and have been shown…
