Free Webinar – Using Drones for Operational Efficiency at Landfills, on Pipelines and Infrastructure

March 18, 2021

 

Today, UAVs come mounted with various software that detects gas leaks, captures and maps progress, detects corrosion, and has many other uses. Mitigation is faster using collected geotagged data, which enables identifying potential problem areas such as leachate collection headers, landfill gas headers, flares, wellheads, tanks, pipelines, equipment, even buildings. You can zero in on hot spots, unidentified tanks, or terrain that could be causing runoff problems reducing the time normally spent to locate, diagnose, and mitigate. We’ll focus on the technologies and uses that bring the most value and benefits with plenty of time for questions.

This educational and non-commercial webinar and Q&A forum are free and open to all who want to learn more about UAV use as a diagnostic and monitoring tool.

Our panelists bring comprehensive expertise to the discussion, including solid waste expertise and landfill management; a licensed pilot − flying and assessing over 120 landfills, pipelines, and other infrastructure; Remote Monitoring and Control (RMC) systems including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), air quality compliance and pollutant dispersion and air measurement programs. The team answers questions throughout the presentation, and the second portion of the program is devoted to Q&A and idea exchange.

Free Webinar – Using Drones for Operational Efficiency at Landfills, on Pipelines and Infrastructure

March 12, 2021

Today, UAVs come mounted with various software that detects gas leaks, captures and maps progress, detects corrosion, and has many other uses. In our March 23 webinar, SCS Engineers discusses how the combination of technologies mounted on a drone produces photogrammetric and aerial photographic imagery offering facilities and businesses the ability to take measurements from photographs. We’ll focus on the technologies and uses that bring the most value and benefits.

This is a free, non-commercial, live webinar with Q&A – open to solid waste, landfill, landfill gas professionals, contractors, and the energy and real estate sectors.

The benefits of drones are:

  • Real-time and more accurate air samples help determine and measure methane or greenhouse gas emissions,
  • Digital surface modeling (DSM) depicts elevations of reflective surfaces, such as facilities, infrastructure, landfill, and vegetation,
  • High-quality orthomosaic maps, digital terrain models (DTM), and waste volumetrics provide valuable information for owners, managers, engineers, and operators,
  • Surveys and inspections are much faster than when using a land vehicle,
  • Labor costs are lower, especially when regular site inspections are required over large and hard to navigate areas,
  • Using drones instead of human labor is safer on dangerous or difficult to navigate sites.
