“The approach is a game changer for leachate management.  We factor in that every trip we make and every mile of road we cover has an environmental impact of its own.” 


“Phytoremediation should be seriously considered by any landfill operation that is contemplating alternative methods for reducing its carbon footprint while cost-effectively managing leachate.”


“The phytoremediation leachate treatment system has allowed us to treat (utilize) 100% of the leachate that used to be trucked off-site.  This resulted in a “green” way to treat our leachate with a huge savings for our company as an added bonus.”
