The 2019 Waste Management & Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) national innovation and excellence award for landfill operations was given to BeneTerra and Remondis for the Swanbank landfill leachate reduction project. By working closely with BeneTerra to integrate a BeneVap evaporator into their leachate gathering and disposal system, Remondis has been able to tightly manage and control leachate levels within the landfill. Previously, Remondis had recirculated the leachate upon the landfill cap in an effort to evapoconcentrate and that was only marginally effective. The new BeneVap system evaporates 30,000 litres per day from the system  leaving behind 5% residual that is deposited back in the landfill. hashtagwastemanagement hashtagWMRR hashtaginnovation hashtaglandfills hashtagleachate
