  • Waste shredding for the landfill industry

    However enormous a landfill site first appears, it is surprising how quickly - and how ineffectively - it can become full. Regardless of how bulky, resilient or abrasive the waste may be, effective shredding makes best use of the space available by considerably reducing the volume of waste. Metso shredder equipment includes three sizes of mobile shredders with a variety of mounts, all capable of providing a range of grain sizes. This makes it easy to select the most efficient and cost effective shredding solution for a wide variety of landfills.

  • Landfill lining

    GCLs have become the gold standard clay component of composite lining systems used in industrial, hazardous and municipal solid waste landfills. Used alone or in combination with a geomembrane in a composite cover system, GCLs provide significantly lower permeability, improved ease of installation, an increased amount of usable space. In many cases GCLs are more cost-effective than traditional compacted clay liners. GCLs are also not subject to deterioration from differential settlement and freeze-thaw cycles, which can damage traditional compacted clay liners. Important design considerations for GCLs in landfill caps include confining pressure, and potential for ion exchange and desiccation.

  • Flaring Solutions for the Landfill Industry - Leachate Evaporation

    Increased concern for the environment has led to new opportunities for landfills to better manage their waste gas. ABUTEC works with the landfill industry to ensure that leachate evaporation is handled in the most efficient way possible. ABUTEC’s high temperature enclosed combustors meet state and federal regulations for burning landfill waste gas at a minimum of 99% destruction and removal efficiency (DRE), meaning almost 100 percent of the vapor to be destroyed is converted to CO and water. These combustors are of high quality, flexibility, low emissions, CSA-approved and able to burn very low calorific gas. When combined with a heat exchanger, the unit can efficiently evaporate the leachate eliminating the need for expensive trucking or disposal.

    Methane and Carbon Dioxide Sensing for Landfill Applications

    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.

  • Protection and Filtration for Industry and waste areas

    Geotextiles enhance both drainage and lining systems in environmental applications. In the large industry of waste containment, geotextiles are used to protect and cushion landfill liners and landfill capping systems, and they are used as critical components of geocomposites such as geocomposite drains and geosynthetic clay liners. Heavyweight, needle-punched nonwovens are use as cushion/protection for landfill and pond liners to keep adjacent stones in overlying or underlying drainage layers from puncturing the impermeable liner.

    Air pollution control for ventilation air methane industry

    Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) is a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) released by coal or mineral mining operations, it is also commonly known as Coal Mine Methane (CMM).  The air pollutants from this process have a global warming potential 21 times greater than carbon dioxide, which is another well known GHG.  As alternative energy technologies have developed, methane is increasingly used to generate electricity and heat.  Landfills and mines represent two of the most abundant sources, however reports indicate that more than 50% of all VAM is exhausted from mine ventilation systems and remains unutilized.

  • Evaporators technology for waste & recycling industry

    The leachate produced by the waste in the landfill is an extremely pollutant effluent that requires high effective treatment processes to comply with the very strict limits for discharging operations. EVALED evaporators are a technological solution which allow to exploit the biogas cogeneration for the full or partial power supply of the plant within the limits of the environmental regulations and to reduce the relevant costs for thermal energy and leachate disposal.
