Characterisation of the efficiency of leachate treatment methods when considering differentgroups of pollutants as phenolic compounds, PCB,s, PBDEs and phthalates is discussed.Strategies for measurements, identification and quantifications of the organic pollutants arepresented and the use of supported liquid membrane extraction (SLM) and micro porousmembrane extraction (MMLLE) in particular, where small and medium molecules areseparated from large molecules. Acute and chronic toxicity tests by

In acute toxicity tests of the leachate a clear accommodating onthe immobility of the Artemia larvae and increasing concentration of leachate was noted.Different species react different on different compounds and therefore on complex effluentsas landfill leachates the use of a battery of bioassays is recommended.
