Landfills: The Latest in Air Regulations, Sustainable Operations, and Energy Recovery (October 2017)




 Landfills: The Latest in Air Regulations, Sustainable Operations, and Energy Recovery (October 2017)
This webinar covered the basics of assessing air pollutant emissions from landfills. Topics covered were gas generation models and regulatory compliance requirements, as well as what effective, sustainable operation of municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills means in today's changing environment. The latest updates to EPA regulations in over two decades of limiting air emissions from landfills were reviewed in detail. Learn the available models for quantifying landfill gas generation/emissions and which to use in different situations, as well as energy recovery from landfill gas, its emissions, and how control requirements can affect feasibility. Also discussed were the potential trade-offs involved in landfill gas-to-energy (LFTGE) projects between greenhouse gas reductions and localized air quality impacts, as well as the economic challenges faced by LFTGE projects in the context of pressures to further reduce emissions.
