LIMNOTOP: Eco-remediation near Ormoz, Slovenia

General
National Id: 
Slovenia_05
Site name: 
Ormoz, Dobrava
Summary: 
The project sought to apply an eco-remediation methodology at the landfill site of Dobrava, in the agricultural lowland of Pannonia (Municipality of Ormoz) Slovenia. The project aimed to demonstrate a successful “green technology” to reduce the environmental impact of landfill sites through a closed hydrological and pollution cycle to complement and exceed existing legislation in the promotion of sustainable landfilling technologies. The methodology consists in establishing dense woodland as a water barrier and in constructing a wetland for leachate treatment aiming to provide efficient water protection to reduce the risk of surface and groundwater contamination.
