Phyto-Utilization™ Feeds on Leachate

Phyto-Utilization™ is the use of fast-growing and non-invasive plants to consume liquid waste to greatly reduce or eliminate the need for other disposal methods.  The Best Kept Secret in WW Treatment.

Phyto Solutions Can Avoid Additional PFAS Treatment, Other Notorious Non-Compliant Compound Levels and Unexpected Charges by Disposing Leachate on Site at Low to No Discharge.  What's a GREENER Solution Than That!?

How Phyto Works

Specialized Plants Feed on Leachate & WW and Live a Long Life

Phtyo Systems obviously capture precipitation to reduce liquid volumes but MORE IMPORTANTLY it is circulated and not recirculated from storage locations and utilized as moisture with the contaminants acting as micro and macro nutrients for the plants, fueling fast growth.  Macro nutrients can include nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, and others. Micro nutrients are metals such as iron, boron, manganese, zinc, and copper.

“The leachate phytoremediation project proves to be an inexpensive green approach that utilizes landfill leachate onsite.  This project is environmentally friendly with low operation and maintenance cost.  This is a truly green approach to treat 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

“We are thrilled to partner with LMS on such a revolutionary approach to onsite leachate treatment.  The Phyto-Utilization system benefits the residents by reducing the long-term costs for leachate disposal while increasing biodiversity within the area.  Being able to achieve these two goals simultaneously meets our mission to be both fiscally and environmentally sustainable within one project.”


We have proven, predictive modelling based on your sites specifics and plug information into intuitive data & modelling.  It's about 96% accurate with safeguards in place to ensure meeting or exceeding leachate disposal targets giving you complete control of your leachate and costs


Phyto doesn't only feed on leachate that your site produces, but helps clean the air and produce oxygen.  We think that's HUGE
