Passive Landfill Gas Biofilter Research Reveals Potential as an Effective and Viable Option

Passive landfill gas biofilter

The Landfill Gas Biofilter – Developing Bio-oxidation Filter Technology for Landfill Gas Treatment During the Long Period of Dwindling Gas Yields at Modern Sanitary Landfills (This article is based upon a paper ref: M. Huber-Humer; Dwindling Landfill Gas – Relevance and Aftercare Approaches; 2nd Boku Waste Conference 2007, Institute of Waste Management, BOKU.) The production and […]

Methods of Siloxane Removal from Biogas

Siloxane removal from biogas

There are at least 5 methods of siloxane removal from biogas which have been used. This remarkable range of methods is described below: Siloxane Removal from Biogas: Activated Carbon Technique Activated carbon is widely used to remove organic substances from gases and liquids because it has excellent adsorbent properties and a large surface area. A proprietary […]

Notorious Landfill Gas Explosions During the 1980s in the UK and the US

Landfill gas explosions

The waste management industry learnt by hard experience from landfill gas explosions the risks imposed by the generation of landfill gas in their landfills, and the penalties in terms of death and injury when the first landfill gas explosions occurred. Somehow, although the parallel experiences to landfill gas explosions were there from the start in the mining industry, for the […]

Landfill Gas Emissions and Health Effect of Landfill

Health-effects-of-landfill

Health Effects of Landfill and Landfill Gas The context for the “Emissions and Health Impacts Associated with Waste Management” report, is a UK Government Strategy Unit Report commissioned to assess health effect of landfill (if any was found to exist) from Enviros Consulting. This report was prepared at the request of the Strategy Unit at the UK Cabinet […]

What are Carbon Credits?

carbon credits explianed

Carbon credits explained! The carbon credit trading technique is a crucial element of state and global emissions trading schemes to help manage global warming. But, what exactly are Carbon Credits? Now read on: The idea behind using carbon credits is to cap industries at a global scale in the amount of yearly emissions they produce.  […]
