After receiving the containerised pilot plant in Athens (Greece), it was moved to the Ano Liosia landfill (in Athens itself), the site selected as the second demonstration site for the pilot plant.
During the last few weeks, the staff of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) participating in the LIFE LEACHLESS project, in close collaboration with Triton staff, has been working to prepare the landfill space where the plant will be located, in order to facilitate the installation of the plant. In fact, TRITON staff will travel to Athens to assist on-site with the final phase of the installation and start-up of the plant.
It is expected that by the end of this year the installation and start-up of the demonstration plant will be completed and that the plant will be operating at the landfill site for four months (from the beginning of January to the end of April), with the intention of demonstrating the replicability and transnationality of the LIFE LEACHLESS technology for the treatment of leachate of a different nature and in a different environment to those treated at the Zonzamas Environmental Complex (Lanzarote).
This activity will complete one of the main stages of the project, the demonstration of the technology in two different leachate production environments and in two different countries and geographies.
Therefore, the LIFE LEACHLESS project is about to complete its technical demonstration tasks, so the end of the project and the compilation of the final results generated during the long journey is getting closer and closer.
