  • Desulphurization unit for landfill gas commissioned

    By the end of 2016 Colsen received the order to realize an installation for the desulphurization of landfill gas from Afvalverwerking Vink in Barneveld (The Netherlands). The amount of landfill gas (ca. 1.000 m³/hr) and the concentration of H₂S (circa 5.500 ppm) required the design and construction of the largest single BIDOX unit within the program of Colsen. The BIDOX reactor has a ...

  • EREF-Funded Project Uses a Life-Cycle Analysis Model to Evaluate the Environmental Sustainability of Solid Waste Management Strategies

    In the future, policies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that affect the type of energy used in the U.S., as well as the cost of energy and emissions, could significantly impact the strategic direction of solid waste management (SWM). SWM systems must proactively adapt to changing waste composition, policy requirements, and an evolving energy system to cost-effectively and sustainably ...

  • First Food delivery trucks powered by food waste

    Within five years after sending their food waste to digesters instead of to landfill, the supermarket chain Waitrose in the UK has her trucks drive on clean and fossil free fuel, made from that same waste. CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) comes from a process of anaerobic digestion, which captures biomethane from the food waste. The biomethane is then compressed to be Bio-CNG for trucks. ...

  • Landfill Methane Emission Monitoring

    Methane (CH4) plays a critical role in the radiation balance and chemistry of the atmosphere. The major anthropogenic sources are anaerobic production from landfills, ruminant animals and their waste, release from the mining and use of fossil fuel, burning of biomass, etc.. On average, over the global scale, landfill methane emissions contribute between 10-19% of the anthropogenic methane burden ...

  • NGVAmerica applauds collaborative approach of new study that identifies opportunities for improving on emission benefits of NGVs

    NGVAmerica today commended the release of a new study by scientists from West Virginia University’s Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions (“CAFEE”). The study published online by Environmental Science & Technology was supported by the Environmental Defense Fund and numerous organizations from the natural gas industry, including a variety of NGVAmerica members. ...

  • HMRC: Landfill waste taxable ‘unless expressly exempt’

    All materials sent to landfill sites will be taxable ‘unless expressly exempt’, under the government’s proposed changes to Landfill Tax legislation from 1 April next year. HMRC elaborated on its plans on the 5th of December in a Policy Paper “Landfill Tax: definition of taxable disposal”. In it, the tax body confirmed that the current list for deciding materials ...

  • Zimbabwe considers landfill biogas

    Zimbabwe’s capital city, Harare, shows determination in reducing its share of GHG emissions damaging the environment by planning a waste-to-energy plant. In southern Africa, the Zimbabwean capital has announced that it’s seeking an investor for the establishment of a waste energy plant at Pomona landfill as the city looks to generate energy ...

  • Landfill and Biogas gas monitoring

    Landfill and biogas provide a source of readily available and renewable energy. However, as a source of energy care has to be taken to understand and quantify impurities in the raw gas that can have an effect on either the amount of energy products, or contaminants that can foul the energy generators (siloxanes). ETG can provide analysis solutions to qualify and quantify these impurities. Gas ...

  • Preventing Occupational Exposure Risks to Methane

    Last month, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a total of $13 million that will be awarded to twelve, multi-year research projects intended to develop cost efficient and effective ways to mitigate methane emissions from natural gas pipeline and storage infrastructure. Methane is not only a primary component of natural gas, it is also a major greenhouse gas, which is a potential ...

  • Yes, Landfill Gas Engines Will Produce More Poison Ivy but also More Tomatoes

    A New York Times article warns of the impending growth of poison ivy. Yes, but this fertilization effect of CO2 has been put to good use by thousands of greenhouses around the world. GE, Cummins and other engine manufacturers are actively pursuing CHP projects which provide greenhouses with electricity, heat, light and CO2. Is it better to increase the production of tomatoes or retard ...

  • Drones Take Flight as Part of New Landfill Monitoring Efforts

    Officials in Boise, Idaho, are taking to the air to inspect their landfill. But it’s not with traditional aerial photography. Instead, Ada County has acquired FAA approval to utilize a Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) or drone to collect high-resolution, 2-D images of its landfill on a more consistent basis. Previously, it used manned flights to get aerial photos once or twice a year. ...

  • Driving green infrastructure USA grows

    Renewable natural gas is derived from the methane that emits from organic waste as it decomposes. This methane is captured at agricultural facilities, landfills, wastewater treatment plants, and separated municipal solid waste digesters, and then cleaned in a treatment process to produce a product indistinguishable from natural gas. The resulting ...
