Modern landfills have evolved. They have an extensive list of infrastructure requirements to ensure they operate in a safe, efficient and sustainable manner. Rice Earth Sciences provides the products and equipment necessary for water, gas and leachate monitoring, testing, management, remediation and more.
Landfill Gas Management
The decomposition of organic matter in a landfill produces greenhouse gasses such as methane and carbon dioxide, as well as trace components. They not only contribute to climate change; landfill gas can be harmful to landfill workers and the public. Beyond foul odors, gas buildup can cause asphyxiation or create explosive conditions. Rice Earth Sciences provides a wide range of products and technologies required to address design and operational challenges involving landfill gas.
Landfill Leachate Management
Open and closed landfill sites leach a number of byproducts that require careful management to prevent contamination of soil and groundwater. Ammonia, methane, chemical oxygen demand and various metals must be measured, collected and disposed of. Rice will help you put all of the necessary systems in place for managing leachate.
