  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • Controlling H2S Emissions from Landfill Gas

    A major US waste handling company operates a large landfill in Florida, and in 1992, when Hurricane Andrew struck southern Florida, the landfill saw a huge increase in the amount of C&D waste. Shortly after this, the levels of H2S started dramatically rising. This company evaluated several technologies for the removal of H2S, which was estimated to be as high as 5000 ppmv, with up to 2-3 tons/ ...

  • Assessment of landfill gas and methane emission at Keru landfill site, Jodhpur (India)

    Jodhpur is densely populated and urbanised city of Rajasthan state. The population of the city is considerably increased in past few decades due to rapid urbanisation and industrialisation within the city. Presently inhabitants of Jodhpur generate about 392 t/d of MSW. MSW management has remained one of the most neglected areas of the municipal systems. About 70–80% of generated MSW is collected ...

  • Estimating national landfill methane emissions

    This paper estimates national methane emissions from solid waste disposal sites in Panama over the time period 1990–2020 using both the 2006 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Waste Model spreadsheet and the default emissions estimate approach presented in the 1996 IPCC Good Practice Guidelines. The IPCC Waste Model has the ability to calculate emissions from a variety of solid ...

  • The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions using various thermal systems in a landfill site

    In this paper, the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from an uncontrolled landfill site filled with Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) are compared with those from controlled sites in which collected Landfill Gases (LFG) are utilised by various technologies. These technologies include flaring, conventional electricity generation technologies such as Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and Gas Turbine (GT) and ...

  • Utilisation of landfill gas for the generation of energy

    The gases in landfill sites that develop during degradation processes, largely contribute to the greenhouse effect and additionally harbour considerable safety and health hazards. However, they are also often rich in methane and therefore a potential energy carrier. In many countries much of this potential for the generation of electricity and heat from landfill gas still exists. Furthermore, ...

  • Compost as a landfill cover material for the elimination of methane emissions

    Landfills, with about 40 - 60 Mio t emitted CH4 each year, are considered to be an important global source of the greenhouse gas methane. These emissions are especially caused by inadequate gas collection systems and uncontrolled emissions from old dumps and unauthorised open dumping. With traditional gas collection systems only 40 to 60 % of the produced gas can be collected and reused or safely ...

  • Development of Low noise landfill gas flare

    Summary: Increasing requirements of the environmental standards and planning permission conditions create more challenges to the equipment providers. Environment Agency guidance demands low emission levels and local planners put low noise levels in their conditions for landfill sites. Achieving both at the same time with conventional equipment was found problematic. Biogas Technology has ...

  • The changing picture of greenhouse gas reporting for landfills

    With the implementation of Federal Mandatory Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reporting in 2010, landfill owners can find themselves subject to GHG reporting regulations at the federal level, and in some cases, also at the state or local level. This article will review the Federal Mandatory Reporting Rule (MRR) requirements for municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills subject to mandatory reporting under 40 ...

  • Landfill Gas Use Trends In The United States

    MOST PEOPLE think of landfills as a necessary evil at best, but our current primary method of waste management generates a by-product with significant energy value - landfill gas (LFG). Collection and control of LFG results in significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With the greater focus on climate change, a burgeoning market for GHG emission offsets is emerging and landfills ...

  • Why high temperature combustion of landfill gas?

    Due to the accumulation of knowledge and the tightening of environmental law, the landfill technology has increasingly become concerned with the management of trace compounds in landfill gas. With landfill gas, contamination is through sulphur, chlorine, fluorine, halogenated hydrocarbons and heavy metals. Other trace elements such as volatile organic compounds (VOC), impose environmental ...
