Landfill Gas Analytical Program
In August of 2016 the EPA released its final updates to the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for reduction of emissions of landfill gas at new and existing landfill across the United States. As the EPA and state regulatory agencies have updated the NSPS and Emission Guidelines (EG), Air Water & Soil Laboratories, Inc. recognized the growing need for landfill gas analytical services for both compliance and internal monitoring purposes.
Whether you are performing Tier II sampling, evaluating gas quality for waste-to-energy uses, or tracking a gas migration issue, AWS can help. We have established the following analytical methods in order to provide the most comprehensive landfill gas capability possible:
Total Non-Methane Organic Compounds (NMOC): EPA 25C Method
Fixed Gases: EPA 3C Method
Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide, Methane
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): EPA TO-15 Method
Sulfurs (including Hydrogen Sulfide): EPA TO-15 Method
Siloxanes: EPA TO-15 Method
Petroleum Hydrocarbons: EPA 18 Method
BTU: ASTM D3588 Method
Our Entech™ Silonite canisters are routinely monitored to ensure that your samples will not leak, suffer atmospheric contamination, or degrade as a result of faulty internal conditions. Additionally, we can provide our canisters at full vacuum or partially charged for compliance with DOT shipping regulations.
custom sampling equipment
AWS can provide custom sampling trains and flow controllers, as well as Teflon™ tubing, Swagelok™ fittings, and other consumables.
