Landfill Gas Collection and Treatment Systems (C11-001)
Natural Attenuation of the Lead Scavengers EDB and 1,2-DCA (C04-047)
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.
- 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
This online engineering PDH course reviews the current knowledge of the transport and fate of EDB and 1,2-DCA in ground water. It also provides information on the distribution of EDB and 1,2-DCA at motor fuel release sites that was collected during a survey of sites coordinated by the U. S. EPA Office of Underground Storage Tanks and the Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) and evaluates the associated chance of contaminating ground water.
Lead was effectively banned in gasoline in the USA before the underground storage tank program was fully implemented. As a result, only a portion of the state agencies that implement the federal UST program routinely monitor for EDB and 1,2-DCA at gasoline spill sites. In many states, little is known of the risk from EDB and 1,2-DCA at old leaded gasoline spill sites. Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA) is widely used by State Agencies to manage the risk from other fuel components, such as benzene, in ground water. The appropriate application of MNA requires a solid understanding of the behavior of the contaminants in ground water.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to all civil, environmental or chemical engineers, as well technical personnel who conduct risk evaluations for EDB or 1,2-DCA at specific motor fuel release sites, and for the technical staff of regulatory agencies that review the risk evaluations and make decisions concerning risk management and cleanup of the contamination. It is also useful for those who must apportion resources for monitoring and risk management of the hazard associated with EDB, benzene, and 1,2 DCA in ground water used for drinking water.
- Understanding the use of EDB and 1,2-DCA in leaded motor fuel
- Familiarizing with the regulation of motor fuel storage to protect ground water and drinking water
- Learning about investigations of EDB and 1,2-DCA at motor fuel release sites
- Familiarizing with the conceptual model of a motor fuel release in the subsurface
- Learning about attenuation caused by physical processes
- Learning about attenuation caused by abiotic transformation or biodegradation
- Applications of Compound Specific Isotope Analysis (CSIA) to document biodegradation and/or abiotic transformation of EDB and 1,2-DCA
- Understanding the distribution of EDB and 1,2-DCA at motor fuel release sites, and the associated chance of contaminating ground water
