Landfill Gas Extraction Systems and the Equipment Used for Energy Recovery

Landfill gas extraction equipment

In this section we discuss landfill gas extraction systems and how the gas collected is used to create renewable energy and then becomes even more sustainable when the waste heat is then used in combined heat & power (CHP) system. Landfill gas is extracted from the landfill by exerting a small negative suction pressure on […]

The Design of Landfill Gas Extraction Pipework

Landfill gas extraction pipework

The landfill gas extraction pipework is the first element of all landfill gas recovery systems. The purpose of the gas collection system is to extract the maximum possible volume of gas but to leave the condensate behind. Landfill gas is warm and saturated with water so it produces a lot of condensate as it passes […]

An Introduction to Landfill Gas Extraction Well Design

It is important that all landfill gas extraction wells (also known as gas extraction boreholes) are designed carefully in accordance with best practice  and in this article we have tried to identify the most important aspect of design. We also recommend the United Kingdom reader to consult the UK Environment Agency Publication, “Guidance on the Management […]
