  • Landfills case study: Space heating with LFG: Small project-big savings

    On a typical January morning in Minnesota, a landfill operator is working on the compactor’s transmission. Despite the four inches of snow on the ground, he opens the garage doors in the maintenance building to let out some of the excess heat. Unlike previous winters, this year the operator can afford to crank up the heat in the building while working on equipment because the heat is being ...

  • Wind-driven SVE system extracts VOCs from landfill

    An innovative soil vapor extraction (SVE) system has operated at the former Ferdula Landfill site in Frankfort, NY, for the past 10 years. The system relies on wind-driven vacuum processes rather than electrically powered air blowers to extract volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the landfill. After a two-year trial beginning in 1998, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ...

  • Recycling Vs. Landfills and Incinerators – Do Benefits of One Outweigh the Other?

    Believing the 2011 survey results of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American nationals generate more than 240 million tons of waste every year.

  • Wetland Biofilter System provides year-round, cost effective treatment to over 1.5 million litres of wastewater

    The success of early surface flow treatment wetlands in Canada was limited by hydraulic blockages and oxygen limitation due to freezing.
