Landfill Gas Collection and Treatment Systems
This online engineering PDH course establishes criteria and guidance for landfill gas (LFG) collection and treatment systems. In addition, this course provides information about the design of systems used to monitor, collect, transport, and treat gas from municipal, industrial, and hazardous waste landfills.
LFG is produced by the biological decomposition of general solid waste refuse and other organic materials disposed of in the landfill. Its production typically begins within a year of waste placement, and may continue up to 50 years after landfill closure, with peak LFG production for any given disposal cell occurring within the first or second year of waste placement. The total LFG production rate increases as more waste is added to the landfill.
This course aims to provide information specifically relating to landfill gas collection systems in order to help landfill employees understand the available equipment and how and when to use them.
This 11 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental, geotechnical engineers, construction managers and landfill operators seeking an introduction to the operation and maintenance of landfill gas collection systems.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the purpose of landfill gas collection systems
- Learning how to design landfill gas collection systems
- Learning how to design landfill gas treatment systems
- Familiarizing with the operation and maintenance of landfill gas collection systems
- Familiarizing with the safety procedures and regulations of landfill gas collection systems
