SCS Engineers Providing Comprehensive Landfill Support in Escambia County, Florida

November 18, 2020

Tampa, FL– Escambia County maintains continuous compliance with all federal and local regulations and air permits at its Perdido Landfill while capturing the landfill gas for energy conversion. The regulatory policies are strict and depend upon large amounts of liquid and gas data collected during operations to function safely, efficiently, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The County contracts with SCS Engineers to support data collection and reporting meeting 40 CFR 60 New Source Performance Standards Subpart XXX, 40 CFR 63 Subpart AAAA, and the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants. SCS professionals are experts with the Landfill’s current Title V air permit No. 0330246-012-AV and intricacies of the Landfill’s energy partnership with Gulf Power/LFG Technologies.

SCS handpicks its teams, made up of individuals who are some of the most experienced professionals when it comes to Title V air compliance permitting and reporting in Florida. Constant and effective communication provides the opportunity for all parties to share observations and data related to the gas collection and control system (GCCS) functionality. The arrangement provides a collaborative management approach and optimizes both beneficial use project and the Landfill’s gas system operation.

Escambia County prefers using SCS Engineers because of its comprehensive services. SCS has one of the longest and most successful biogas practices in the United States. SCS designs, constructs, and operates more landfill gas to energy (LFGE) plants than any other engineering firm in the nation.

SCS Technology Services® works closely with landfill operators, field services, and engineers developing software that harness technology to capture, track, and evaluate environmental data. SCSeTools® supports the County by collecting volumes of data then using the data to make semiannual and annual compliance reporting more accurate and timely, enhance productivity with informed decisions, and increase field safety while maximizing gas capture.

“We look forward to continuing to build on our successful relationship as waste filling moves to Section 5 and the gas collection and control system in the cells is expanded”, stated Dan Cooper, an SCS vice president, and the project director. “We’re here to optimize the infrastructure using technology and our expertise for the County and its citizens.”
