SCS Engineers is a pioneer in our nation’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to combat climate change. We proactively pursue the development of markets that produce major sources of methane as part of delivering products and services to consumers. Our landfill gas collection systems that produce renewable energy alone help our clients destroy the equivalent of more than 35 million metric tons of carbon dioxide every year. That’s the equivalent of removing 7.5 million passenger vehicles from the roads every year.

From landfills to the energy industry to dairies and organic composting, SCS Engineers plays a significant role in monitoring and reducing greenhouse gases throughout our nation.
