Geotech is the market leading manufacturer and supplier of portable and fixed landfill gas analysers and biogas analysers. Around the world, Geotech gas analysers are rapidly becoming even more important with the growing focus on renewable energy from gas produced in anaerobic digestion and landfill sites.
Gas analysis is only part of a full range of environmental monitoring equipment that Geotech supplies, including groundwater sampling and monitoring instruments, pneumatic pumps for leachate control and remediation processes, as well as CO2 monitors and N2O monitors for the laboratory and medical industries.
Geotech offers a total support package to all its customers, supporting you from the moment you enquire. Support is delivered through on site demonstrations, field trials and product training, to post-sale servicing of equipment and ongoing technical support, provided by Geotech's in house dedicated and experienced technical support, service and sales teams.
The equipment manufactured at Geotech is made to the highest quality, working to a wide range of industry standards so customers can expect top reliability and complete peace of mind. Current standards Geotech have achieved and have led the market in are ISO17025 Calibration, ATEX certification on portable gas analysers, with MCERTS accreditation on the new GA5000, GEM5000 and BIOGAS 5000.
Geotech has a web of established international distributors and works closely with them to supply and support users of its equipment throughout the world. As well as full technical and product support, a number of Geotech's distributors can offer local equipment servicing to Geotech's own high standards.
Formed in 1988 in the landfill gas industry, Landtec grew to be a leading provider of technology and software for a better environment. Headquartered in Colton, California, Landtec designs and manufactures the Landtec System for accurate, repeatable measurement of methane and other greenhouse gases. The system includes Accu-Flo wellheads, GEM portable gas analysers, AEMS stationary monitoring systems and the EnviroComp report service.
Landtec merged with Geotechnical Instruments in October 2006 and maintains operations in the UK under the name Geotechnical Instruments UK Ltd (trading as Geotech).
'The merger represented a major milestone for our company' said Jamie Tooley, General Manager. 'By combining the broad range of innovative technology, development and production capabilities of Landtec, with Geotechnical Instrument's expertise in designing and manufacturing high performance gas analysers, we have created a dynamic company focused on fulfilling the global need for accurate and reliable monitoring systems.'
Landtec originally partnered with Geotechnical Instruments in 1991 to sell gas analysers and develop the GEM500 instrument. The GEM rapidly became the standard for monitoring gas quality and flow in the landfill gas industry throughout North America. Since that time, the two companies have jointly engineered other technology including the GEM500's successor, the GEM2000, and the stationary field analytical unit (FAU).
'We have combined two successful organisations focusing on methane recovery and renewable energy' said Jamie Tooley. 'Geotechnical Instruments has expanded our R&D and customer service capacities as well as the distribution of the Landtec system. Based on leading technology, web software and accepted methodologies; the Landtec system enables stakeholders in GHG reduction projects around the globe to accurately monitor gas production remotely.'

Summary of Geotech equipment certifications
Landfill and biogas
Geotech currently supplies the gas monitoring equipment for nearly 50% of UK anaerobic digestion, and we are market leaders in UK landfill gas monitoring and biogas analysis.
Groundwater is an important resource, so having accurate instruments for water quality monitoring is vital. Geotech supplies a range of instruments for groundwater monitoring and sampling.
Geotech has developed equipment for each stage of the remediation process, from identifying contamination to gas leak detection and the treatment of contaminated liquid.
Our portable CO2 monitors are used in a variety of applications. Also measuring O2, temperature and humidity, they are versatile instruments for laboratories worldwide.
Verification of piped medical gases (N2O and O2) can be achieved with Geotech's G210 portable N2O analyser, and our G200 can be used for monitoring background levels of anaesthetic gases.
Coal mine methane
Geotech has developed gas monitoring products to optimise power generation from the natural gas released during mining, as well as for low concentration methane purposes.
Outdoor air quality
Currently working in partnership with a team from the University of Cambridge, Geotech will soon be launching a new air quality monitoring system for a range of gases.
