landfill gas monitoring News

  • 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 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 ...

  • The latest technology in landfill gas analysis

    Part II A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 sets the minimum standard for contamination when land is redeveloped - as a minimum, sites must not qualify as contaminated land once they have been developed. The utilisation of brownfield sites therefore necessitates environmental investigation work, but Matthew Penfold from Geotechnical and Environmental Assessment Associates (GEA) says ...
