2022 National Ambient Air Monitoring Conference

Methane Emissions from Disposal of Biodegradable Polyester in U.S. Landfills

June 13, 2022


Dr. Ketan Shah of SCS Engineers will present his paper and findings at the Air and Waste Management Association, 115th ACE-22 conference from June 27-30 in San Francisco, California. Methane generation, recovery, and emissions projections for biodegradable polyester fiber used to create clothing products are growing. This clothing will eventually be disposed of in municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills in the U.S. The scope of work described in this research project includes providing the methane estimates that discuss the data, assumptions, and calculation methods used to develop the estimates.

See the full abstract of “Methane Emissions from Disposal of Biodegradable Polyester in U.S. Landfills,” and we hope you will consider attending Dr. Shah’s presentation at ACE-22.

National Ambient Air Monitoring Conference, Pittsburgh

May 26, 2022

Meet SCS Engineers professionals at the 2022 National Ambient Air Monitoring Conference in Pittsburgh, August 22-25.

The 2022 NAAMC is sponsored by US EPA in conjunction with the Association of Air Pollution Control Agencies (AAPCA) and the National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA). It is a must for federal, state, local and tribal air pollution organizations involved with operating, planning, or managing air monitoring networks and reporting data to AQS, and/or AIRNOW. Essential training on air monitoring topics will help prepare you for future challenges of air monitoring.

SCS professionals will present at the conference, including the following:

Sergio Valenzuela (Senior Technician) will discuss Quantifying Salton Sea’s Harmful PM During High Wind Events.
Jose Landeros (Senior Project Professional) will talk about Air Monitoring in Mexicali, Mexico. The Evolution of Air Pollution Monitoring in a Border City.

The conference is still taking shape. Click here for updates and registration information.  Hope to see you there!
