  • Arizona Landfill Case Study (C3 Technology)

    Between 1979 and 1980, industrial and hazardous wastes were disposed of at the Site in a series of unlined pits, each of which was used for a particular type of waste disposal. It is reported based on evaluations of manifests that approximately 3.4 million gallons of hazardous liquid wastes and between 3,700 and 4,100 tons of solid wastes were disposed of in the pits at the Site. Of particular ...

  • “New” Bioreactor Landfill Technology is 20 Years Old

    Municipal solid waste landfills have gradually evolved to engineered, anaerobic, dry-tomb facilities designed to protect the environment. They present, however, long-term liabilities that require decades of care. Aerobic bioreactor technology achieves rapid stabilization of waste and offers many advantages over conventional sites, including the elimination of methane, a major greenhouse gas. The ...

  • Landfills types of technologies for converting LFG into Energy

    A number of factors, including the availability of an energy market, project costs, potential revenue sources, and other technical considerations, can determine which technologies are most appropriate for a particular landfill gas-to-energy (LFGE) project. Technologies for converting LFG into energy include the following. Electricity Generation Approximately 70 percent of the LFGE ...

  • Municipal landfill leachate treatment by SBBGR technology

    The paper reports the results of a laboratory-scale investigation aimed at evaluating the performance of a periodic biofilter with granular biomass (SBBGR) for treating leachate coming from a mature municipal landfill. The results show that the SBBGR was able to remove roughly 80% of COD in leachate. The remaining 20% of COD were, therefore, presumably owing to the presence in the leachate of ...

  • Risk analysis of landfills

    A landfill has its own risks, like many other technologies. In the framework of the Polyproject 'Risk and Safety of Technical Systems' (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich) a special methodology has been developed for analysing and assessing the different risks of a landfill. In the first main task of this task-oriented methodology, the whole procedure and the goals of the risk analysis ...

  • Landfill Cap Enhancements

    Introduction: The precipitation to the landfill cover is balanced by the combination of following effects: run-off, cumulating in soil, evapotranspiration, and percolation. For a given amount of precipitation, in order to reduce or eliminate percolation, the effects of run-off and/or evapotranspiration need to be enhanced. Water Harvesting Water harvesting uses ...

  • Membrane Bioreactor for Sanitary Landfill

    The Problem The county of Warren NJ owns and operates a sanitary landfill in Oxford Twp, NJ. The facility generates an average of 50,000 gallons per day of leachate, with peaks to 100,000 gallons per day. The facility was discharging to a local POTW from their lagoon, but they were facing requirements for nitrogen removal from the POTW and needed a new system to provide ...

  • Landfills Expand Energy Output

    HIGH fossil fuel prices and growing concern about global climate change are creating favorable conditions for landfill gas energy (LFGE) projects. Notably, endorsement of LFGE by Federal agencies and many states as a form of “green” power has enabled LFGE developers to earn premiums for electricity marketed through green power programs, and to benefit from expanded federal tax credits for ...

  • Zero landfill is not zero waste

    THE Zero Waste movement is more than just a vision. It is a movement that is actually changing the world. To prove it, I recommend visiting GreenBiz.com and in the search box type “zero waste.” You will be amazed, as I was, at the tsunami of business activities over the last couple of years related to the idea of totally eliminating waste from our manufacturing, distribution and ...

  • Landfill Leachate Treatment Technology Piloted in Ireland - White Paper

    The primary objective of this project was to develop a full scale Pro-Bio design which could treat wastewaters such as Leachate by piloting a small scale first to determine the precise structural design, process flow and programming which would be required for a successful full scale model of this technology. During this pilot treating Landfill Leachate, we were determined to learn more about ...


  • Case study on landfill gas mitigation

    Over the last 20 years, Biogas Technology Ltd has established itself as one of the UK’s leading supplier of landfill gas mitigation technologies. The privately owned company provides owners and operators of landfill sites with the technology to collect andconvert methane gas into useful energy (normally electricity) or simply ‘flare’ it to reduce  missions of harmful greenhouse gases. ...
