Weather monitoring at German Landfills - Case Study
According to the Landfill Regulation and Federal Emission Law in Germany it is mandatory on landfills to monitor weather data such as temperature, precipitation, evaporation, wind direction and speed. This is not only good for environmental protection purposes but also for the residents nearby. In this regard two new Lufft weather stations and one Lufft wind sensor were set up recently in Hamberg and Esslingen.Weather data at Landfill Hamberg mbHThe Landfill Hamberg close to Maulbronn had searched for a new...
Biological desulphurization of Landfill biogas - Case study
Summary Biorem`s biogas desulphurization product is providing very high removal efficiencies at a landfill site in Quebec. Despite the highly variable concentrations and low winter temperatures, the system has achieved an average removal efficiency of 97%, and has maintained outlet nydrogen sulphide concentration below target consistently. As a result, the customer has realized a significant cost reduction over the previously used chemical scrubbing process, and site environment has improved. The biological...
Keeping APCr out of Landfill
The CIWM have recently featured an article by our very own Dr David Deegan in the latest edition of their magazine. The article explains why Tetronics International were unhappy to be informed recently that Defra ministers had taken the decision not to remove the derogation that allows Air Pollution Control residues to be disposed of to landfill at three times the standard waste acceptance criteria (3xWAC) threshold for hazardous landfill. Chief technical officer, David Deegan, explains why below: The waste...
Tire Shredding: Alternatives to Landfills
For many reasons, whole tires pose a major problem to landfills. The most obvious is the inefficient use of space. The actual rubber of a tire takes up only a small fraction of the space a tire occupies, and the rest of the space is wasted. A less obvious but far more serious problem is that tires may trap methane gasses when buried with other garbage in landfills. When this happens, the tires can float like balloons to the surface, sometimes rupturing the protective liners that keep contaminants from polluting...
Challenges at MSW Landfill Sites
Covering the day’s trash at the landfill Today’s municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills are much more than places to dump household trash. They’re engineered facilities that are designed to hold and isolate the trash from the environment and are governed by both federal and state regulations. Landfill designers and operators face two main challenges to the integrity of their landfills. One occurs on the face of landfills, where they have to control windblown litter; landfill gases; rodents,...
