Featured speakers include:

Mike Herzberger, GISP, CFM, Division Chief, Maryland Environmental Service, David Hostetter, Business Manager, SCS Engineers; Cory Daviau, Division Head, Engineering and Compliance for Solid Waste Facilities, Baltimore County will discuss Remote Monitoring at the Landfill: GPS, Drones, …

Landfill Remote Monitoring and Control (RMC) systems are the combinations of various technologies which help to:
»Give engineers, operators, and managers timely and actionable data so that they can make intelligent decisions
»Reduce operations and maintenance costs
»Allow operators to control equipment remotely
»Increase the safety of the site
»Reduce environmental risk

– Jacob Shepherd, Senior Project Engineer of SCS Engineers, will present Landfill Air Regulation Update – New Methane Control and Federal Air Rules for 2021

All landfills regulated under the NESHAP air program must comply with updated federal regulations by September 2021, including new requirements for landfill gas beneficial use treatment systems and gas system design plans. Additionally, the EPA is expected to finalize a federal plan implementing new NSPS air rules for landfills modified or constructed before July 2014, and not yet covered under an approved state plan. At the state level, as part of a continued focus on greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction, Maryland MDE is expected to publish new regulations this year addressing landfill methane control. This presentation will cover what landfills need to do to comply with the updated federal regulations and discuss anticipated new requirements under the MDE regulatory initiative.


Wednesday, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm ET
Thursday, 9:00 am – 12:15 pm ET

David Hostetter of SCS Engineers Honored with a 2019 Engineering Leaders Under 40 Award

September 13, 2019

Control Engineering is a publication for automation engineers who design, implement, maintain, and manage control/instrumentation systems, components, and equipment for a wide range of industries and manufacturers. The magazine’s Engineering Leaders Under 40 Program recognizes professionals under the age of 40 who are making a significant contribution as control and plant engineering professionals. Dave Hostetter of SCS Engineers is one of these recognized for his professionalism and contributions this year. Dave’s work supports multiple industries, including waste management, and he is well known for his work designing and implementing remote monitoring and control systems, called RMC.

In 2014, finding most systems inadequate and too expensive for waste management, SCS Engineers developed and launched a new technology platform called SCS eTools©. The SCS RMC© component is used to control remote equipment and alert operations to changes in conditions.

RMC systems are useful for reducing operations, maintenance, monitoring, and reporting costs; decreasing risk; and increasing the ability to understand, operate, and troubleshoot control systems and equipment. Overall, RMC systems improve the owner/operator’s quality of life and the bottom line by allowing them to get the most out of their control systems and equipment.

Dave loves creating, whether it is on the beach with his family, “inventions” with his daughter, or brewing beer.

Dave is the SCS RMC Regional Manager for all states east of the Mississippi. His responsibilities include developing and implementing RMC technologies for use in environmental control systems. These systems, such as cloud-based SCADA, help private industry and municipalities achieve their environmental goals, protect workers, and help minimize operational costs.

Dave is a leader in applied technology for the waste industry – he listens to his clients’ concerns and goals, keeping his solutions focused on their needs. Respected by his clients, peers, and SCS co-workers, he delivers sustainable solutions that balance the clients’ need to provide services and products while protecting our environment.

Young himself, he embraces the SCS culture of dedicating himself to developing other young engineers into future leaders like himself and sharing his knowledge for the betterment of industries and the environment.

Well done!
