This diploma work researches the treatment of these leachates via a centrifugal filter. The specific leachates are originated from the landfill of ‘’Pera Galinwn’’ of Heraklion and then are going to be treated by a centrifugal separator. We received a total of 11 days treated leachate (samples) to which measurements have been carried out to test the removal performance of the system (centrifugal filter) at different parameters such as pH, TOC, BOD, COD, TSS, turbidity, conductivity, sulphates, ammonium NH3-N, Total phosphorus, nitrogen, TS (Total solids). Some of the leachates were after the use of flocculants and others without having added flocculant. The centrifuge filter presented good removal rates on many parameters which are mentioned below but for the removal of so strong polluting loads as a landfill site so that the outflows match with the environmental limits is necessary either the further development of the method or the addition of other processes to help.
