LANDFILLS MONITORING

Air quality control is critical for environmental monitoring and very important for protection of human health. The detection and identification of toxic gases, chemical vapors, malodours, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the field at trace concentrations are of interest to allow the users to identify the nature and location of the source material, take appropriate actions to protect human life, and monitor the industrial processes of waste treatment and decontamination to a safe level.

In the case of landfill gas (LFG), the main gases are produced such as methane (CH4) and Non-methanic Hydrocarbons (NMHCs). Another possible constituent of LFG includes carbon dioxide (CO2). These compounds (mainly CO2, and CH4) are greenhouse gases and are considered to be undesirable since they are a contributory factor in global climate change.

Waste management is an enormous challenge for the environmental condition to control air quality, water quality, and odour of air and groundwater. Landfill and waste recycling prevents the waste management problem and continuous monitoring of environmental variables can be an important part of this effort. Monitoring of weather conditions provides data that can be used to address these challenges that can disrupt dust and fine particles, irritating the eyes and respiratory system. Much of the collected data and alert program notifies for a strong gust of wind or heavy rain. 

Landfill monitoring sensors are designed with the calculation of potential evapotranspiration and are usually supplied complete with what is necessary for the: temperature, humidity, rain, net solar radiation (for the calculation of evaporation), wind speed, and direction.

Meteoxperts solution provide all type of sensor used in monitoring landfill and help society grow better.

Meteorological Monitoring Sensors:

  • Wind Speed
  • Wind Direction
  • Temperature
  • Relative Humidity
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Rain Gauge
  • Solar Power
