New regulatory policies require landfill owners/operators to reduce reactive organic gas emissions to improve regional air quality, mitigate toxic soil or structure migration, and protect public health, safety, and property. Our LFG projects include utilization feasibility studies, New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), and other LFG emission and migration monitoring and control system designs, LFG recovery system design and construction, LFG modeling, Title V permitting, LFG-to-Energy (LFGE), construction, system operation, maintenance, and monitoring (OM&M), and technical support to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) on LFG issues.

The majority of our clients hire SCS to design and build their projects because we expedite the permitting and construction schedules while reducing the overall cost. Click here to read more about the types of systems and to learn more about our RNG projects.

SCS Engineers’ specialized services for landfill gas include:

An LFG recovery projection provides the basis of the economic analysis of a methane utilization project and the energy, energy credits, and carbon credits that impact LFG as an asset. SCS has completed LFG recovery forecasts for hundreds of landfills to support LFGE and RNG projects in the U.S. and Canada. Our forecasts apply the SCS empirically-calibrated LFG recovery model, based on nearly 30 years of research applying our vast database of historical site information and expert evaluations of LFG collection system design and performance. LFGE project developers, financiers, and sustainability managers recognize SCS as the industry leader in providing reliable LFG recovery forecasts that are the cornerstone of due diligence evaluations of LFGE and RNG project assets.

Projections are prepared to:

  • Support an energy recovery project,
  • Satisfy regulatory requirements and due diligence,
  • Satisfy sustainability, ESG, or another goal held by our client.
