BIOGAS EXTRACTION FROM LANDIFLL
Our technology applied at landfill site consist in the extraction of biogas continuously produced by the digestion of municipal solid waste deposited. This biogas is manifested for many years even after the completion and subsequent closure of the landfill. If not extracted and controlled tends to seek ways out of the surface of the landfill or search other preferential pathways in the subsoil, in the case of landfills not perfectly sealed. These two phenomena cause, the first manifestations of unpleasant odors, and the second, danger situations for settlements surrounding the landfill. Since 1990, the ECOGAS Ltd is active in this area, always with new technologies, creating turnkey systems that avoid these faults. There are various types of installations according to the characteristics of the landfill and specific needs. In brief summary of the types of facilities may be:
- Plants System with single extraction and flaring of biogas
- Plants System with biogas extraction and energy recovery
The identification of the type of plant to be set up is due to the specific needs and the quantity and quality of the biogas produced.
The Ecogas srl, based on decades of experience in this industry, can you suggest, even with computer support, the best solution for each specific case. Energy recovery can be a useful source of alternative energy, providing landfill site operators the opportunity to use it within the same structures or, where permitted to sell to operators of energy.
