Leachate Management Specialists Enters into Exclusive Agreement to Introduce Exciting New Technology

Posted by JK Environmental in Blog | 0 comments

LMS has recently entered into an exclusive agreement to offer an exciting new enhanced evaporation technology in the United States

This technology will allow LMS to offer a new solution at landfills and industrial facilities where phyto-utilization or engineered wetlands may not be a perfect fit.

When an industrial facility needs to evaporate water, the most common technologies used are mechanical/thermal evaporation or evaporation ponds. Such processes typically incur significant operational costs, energy costs, and require a large area for installation. The search for new water treatment techniques has become incredibly important over the past decade and one of the forerunners of this research has been Israel, driven by the scarcity of freshwater resources and regional volatility. The Israeli company Lesico CleanTech, a subsidiary of the Lesico Group (one of the country’s leading infrastructure and construction companies), has recently developed and patented a very promising technology based on enhanced evaporation called Wind Aided Intensified eVaporation (WAIV).

WAIV increases evaporative capacity through vertically mounted wetted surfaces exposed to wind energy. It is considered a net zero discharge system because the majority of water is evaporated, while any liquid that drops from the surfaces is captured in a lined impervious area below the unit and recirculated back into the system. Contaminants in the waste stream are concentrated in the lined ponds or on the wetted surfaces.
