ETLFs

July 25, 2023

SCS professionals can identify the ETLF warning signs which usually occur in the collection data but can be difficult to diagnose, such as enhanced volumetric gas generation associated with reaction sites.

 

We hope you can join SCS Engineers and Dr. Craig Benson, who studies the phenomenon, to our free, non-commercial webinar entitled “Identifying and Managing Elevated Temperature Landfills.”

At this session, you’ll get an update on the knowns and unknowns of ETLF conditions.

  • Why every operator of a sizable landfill should look out for rising temperatures.
  • What to do should you see a problem, and
  • The focus of current research as more sites are under watch.

Our ETLF session is for landfill owners, operators, technicians, field personnel, engineers, and regulators interested in learning about the latest research and mitigation strategies from the foremost experts in the field.

We encourage audience engagement with our panelists. We provide the ability to ask questions anonymously. We respect and understand your time constraints; those unable to stay on the live session will automatically receive a link to a recording.

ETLF Field Tips:

SCS OM&M teams look for these signs in the field data collected:

  • The CH4/CO2 ratio is often a leading indicator
  • Temperatures increase – real-time data of a reaction
  • Gas generation volumes increase
  • Leachate and condensate quantities increase
  • Leachate and gas quality deteriorates
  • Settlement greatly increases but is a lagging indicator

ETLF Webinar Description: The generation of heat in a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill is normal as microorganisms break down waste; however, Elevated Temperature Landfills (ETLFs) exhibit temperatures above regulatory thresholds due to abnormal chemical reactions within the waste mass. These reactions can cause changes in landfill gas composition, create odors, cause rapid and severe waste settlement, and generate leachate seeps and outbreaks. All of these issues add expensive costs to managing the facility, and that’s where this team can help.

Please join SCS Engineers for our live ETLF webinar. We welcome Dr. Craig Benson, who studies the phenomenon, and our solid waste and field engineers, who bring their expertise for an engaging presentation. This ETLF session is suitable for landfill owners, operators, technicians, field personnel, engineers, and regulators interested in learning more and would like to engage with some of the foremost experts in the field.
