  • 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 ...

  • Landfill gas H2S increase measured with high-range analysers

    Hydrogen sulphide levels (H2S) in landfill gas have increased and Geotech has responded to changes reported by landfill site operators by now offering analysers measuring H2S up to 10,000 ppm. Rapidly rising H2S levels are thought to be caused by waste-to-landfill content changing largely as a result of success in recycling and other initiatives to avoid sending waste to landfill. Previously, H2S ...
