An Introduction to Operation and Maintenance of Landfill Gas Systems

COURSE NO: C03-047
An Introduction to Operation and Maintenance of Landfill Gas Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the need for an operation and maintenance (O&M) plan for a landfill gas collection system that addresses the following: extraction wells, LFG monitoring probes, condensate collection and treatment, and flare station.


The operation and maintenance of landfill gas (LFG) system typically includes a site-specific monitoring program that is flexible and performance based. LFG systems should be monitored on a regular basis to enable adjustments to be made to the wells to maximize extraction, prevent migration, and minimize drawing oxygen into the landfill. The monitoring procedures should be regularly evaluated as changing climatic and operational conditions can have an effect on the results obtained.


This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, construction managers and landfill operators seeking an introduction to the operation and maintenance of landfill gas collection systems.
