SCS Webinar: Identifying and Managing Elevated Temperature Landfills

July 27, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Now On-Demand! Identifying and Managing Elevated Temperature Landfills

ETLFs are landfills where gas wells exhibit elevated temperatures (> 131 oF) over an extended landfill area that are atypical of temperatures commonly associated with methanogenic biological waste degradation. Approximately 20 ETLFs have been encountered in North America, some with in-situ waste temperatures approaching 300 °F.

If you could not join us, we hope you will find value in this SCS Engineers’ interactive webinar about ETLFs. We welcome Dr. Craig Benson, who studies the phenomenon, and our expert solid waste and field engineers, who bring their expertise for a more rounded presentation.




Who Should Attend and What You’ll Learn?

At this session, you’ll get an update on the knowns and unknowns of ETLF conditions.

  • Why every operator of a sizable landfill should look out for rising temperatures.
  • What to do should you see a problem, and
  • The focus of current research as more sites are under watch.

Our ETLF session is for landfill owners, operators, technicians, field personnel, engineers, and regulators interested in learning more and would like to engage with some of the foremost experts in the field.

SCS’s forums are educational, non-commercial webinars with a Q&A forum throughout; they are free and open to all who want to learn more about landfill operations and technology.

We encourage you to share this video.
