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 projects.
