Different leachate feeding strategies were tested and compared based on BSM1 framework. Leachate co-treatment adversely effected nitrogen removal efficiency and increased aeration energy costs. Shock loading at noon resulted in the worst treatment performance by overloading the plant. Drip feeding based on ammonia control ensures a higher degree of flexibility by adjusting the leachate flow.
