Recent decades brought a rapid growth in the global demand for energy. This trend is accurate for both developed as well as developing countries. Electrical power is a key source of energy for the vast majority of the world population. Although the usage of renewable energy is on the rise, the majority of electric power production worldwide is still based on conventional methods utilizing coal, oil and gas as its fuel to power the stations.
Landfills are categorized by regulations in three types: industrial, municipal, and hazardous. Individual landfills may be further differentiated by the types of waste which they accept. All landfills are required to be capped, usually occurring at the end of each day. The cap is typically 6-8” of soil. The cap reduces odor and loss due to wind. At the closing of the landfill, a permanent cap consisting of a membrane and more soil is added. Before the landfilling operation begins, an “impermeable”...
Our range of gas monitoring instruments are used to measure the constituents of Biogas and monitor Landfill sites for Methane (CH4), Carbon dioxide (CO2), Hydrogen sulphide (H2S), Carbon Monoxide(CO) and Oxygen (O2).
Biogas is increasingly important as source of sustainable energy. When biogas is produced through any form of anaerobic digestion, it will be mostly polluted with hydrogen sulphide. The concentrations can vary from 200 ppm up to several volume %.
Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy...

Geothermal energy production promises 24/7 power supply with minimal carbon footprint. Containment of hot process water is an application which Elvaloy® Terpolymer Geomembrane can provide complete enviromental protection, and remote area flexible deployment.
Application: In March 1986 an explosion destroyed a bungalow adjacent to a landfill site in Loscoe, Derbyshire. Subsequent measurements showed that 150-200 cubic meters of gas per hour were being generated by landfill waste. This event triggered a change in the way the waste industry considered and regulated gas generated at landfill sites; resulting in the landfill regulations of 2002, and in particular LFTGN03: the Guidance on the Management of landfill Gas.
Today in modern society we generate waste and and we generate it in vast quantities. Professionals around the world are dedicated to processing this material as efficiently as possible. Efficient processes and higher population density increase the risk of affecting the quality of life of workers, neighboring communities and the overall population.
Landfill leachate is the runoff water that occurs from operational or closed landfills. This water flows at lower rates on dry days when naturally occurring moisture percolates out and at higher rates on rainy days when the leachate waters are combined with stormwater.
