Developing former landfill

Read More

Read the latest GGS editorial by Simon Talbot, Developing former landfill.  The article focuses on the challenges in quantifying the ground-gas risk posed by former landfill sites. The use of continuous monitoring techniques can better quantify the real ground-gas risks from former landfill, allowing development to go ahead without the need for over-conservative and expensive protection measures. The paper also stresses the need for quality installation of ground-gas membranes.

GasClam Data – Why Regulators Like It

Read More

Conventional ground-gas monitoring data is at best a tabulated collection of snap-shots in time. As such it is susceptible to huge degrees of error with the worst case either not captured at all or poorly characterised.

GasClam®: Buy or Hire?

Read More

GasClam® is a beautifully designed piece of equipment. It is designed to fit inside a standard ground-gas monitoring well and continuously monitor both the ground-gases and the environmental parameters that influence those gases. However, it is the GasClam® data and the confidence that can be placed on its interpretation that is valuable.

Simon has had long involvement in ground-gas investigations and long experience of working in both public and private sectors.

GGS’ experience of ground-gas process and knowledge of legislation and best practice coupled with Simon’s work that bridges the public and private sectors has been particularly important to this research project.

I recommend GGS GasClam® service and the way they interpret the data as being a fantastic asset to coming up with the right answer. They will really make a difference to you if time is critical – they have the potential to shorten the monitoring period from months or years to a matter of weeks and the data they provide is still far, far better than you would get through conventional methods.
