GCCS compliance

July 26, 2021

 

The EPA  and, in some cases, states are rolling out new emissions guidelines at least as stringent. The EPA estimates that the plans could cover about 1,600 landfills. These landfills are in 41 states, tribal entities, and the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

MSW landfills without Gas Collection and Control Systems (GCCS) that reach a specific threshold will need to add these systems and have 30 months to install or update control systems to meet new standards.  As you’ve noticed by now, we’ve greatly oversimplified what is happening.

The new regulations and timetables are difficult to understand and untangle. SCS Engineers, in concert with SCS Field Services, have prepared resources to help during the transition period and afterward when landfills are likely to need more monitoring and measurement, thus creating millions of more bits of data to store, analyze, and report.

We hope you find these resources useful. We will be publishing more soon.

These resources may help you with future monitoring and maintenance:

  • VideoUsing GIS Technology on Landfills for efficient monitoring, maintenance, and compliance.
  • Waste Today Article: Landfill Operators discuss using eTools, a web-based application platform for landfill gas data.
  • EM Magazine: Remote Monitoring and Control and SCADA on landfills

Thank you to the many folks attending SCS’s live webinar on July 15th about managing the NESHAP, NSPS/EG transition period. As promised, we’ve created a library of resources for you to use and share with your colleagues.

 

These resources may help you with future monitoring and maintenance:

  • Video: Using GIS Technology on Landfills for efficient monitoring, maintenance, and compliance.
  • Web page: SCSeTools is a web-based application platform that collects, monitors, views, charts, graphs, and manages data.
  • Find an Expert: Search feature on our website to find assistance with the service area Clean Air Act.
