SCS Engineers Videos for public use
The SCS Engineers Learning Center provides hundreds of videos for communities and businesses interested in becoming more environmentally friendly through efficiency and other sustainable methods.


Our latest video release is Carbon Capture and Storage – CCS Webinar Series. The video features Illinois as an example, but much of the information pertains to all states. Shifting consumer sentiment drives significant rewards to companies that acknowledge and address their climate impact. Many legislators, regulators, and industry professionals agree carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is one way to lower carbon footprints. Watch the Illinois Basin Carbon Capture and Storage webinar to learn about the benefits. It is an EPA-approved technology that companies are exploring to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. CCS includes three main components:

  1. Capturing the carbon dioxide
  2. Transporting the carbon dioxide
  3. Injecting the carbon dioxide into deep underground rock formations to safely capture and store it away from groundwater and the atmosphere.


Geologic sequestration of CO2 can be of great benefit because it plays an important role in reducing GHG emissions, but some may see it as a risk without education. We’ve broken the webinar about the key influencers for industry and manufacturing use into 5 chapters:

  1. 00:00 Speakers and Why CCS is Important to Address Sustainability and Climate Change
  2. 04:17 Key Considerations for CCS Projects
  3. 14:00 Engaging With Your Stakeholders and Public Outreach
  4. 21:17 The Class VI Permitting Process
  5. 35:18 The Components of a CCS Project – Permitting, Engineering, Operating, Monitoring to Closure

SCS Engineers
Ensure your investment in the most appropriate, sound strategies.

WM and SCS discuss how they are working toward improving sustainability in the waste industry. These landfill systems are improving connectivity, mobility, and visualization by using data science to facilitate better decisions.


David Hostetter from SCS Engineers and Dennis Siegel from WM (Waste Management) join Inductive Automation to talk about the unique processes and challenges within the waste management industry, from residential to the engineering and life cycles of landfills. They discuss how operational improvements in this essential service and its environmental footprint are making the industry more sustainable. They dive into the 24/7 maintenance and monitoring of landfills, adjusting to changing conditions in real-time, reducing cost, generating renewable energy, improving the health and safety of operators, and being proactive in a changing world. These landfill systems, such as WM’s Connected Landfills are improving connectivity, mobility, and visualization by using data science to facilitate better decisions.
