GGS uses GasClam® continuous monitoring technology to monitor ground-gas in operational landfills, to identify the following parameters:
- Carbon dioxide
- Hydrogen sulphide
- Carbon monoxide
- Total volatile organic compounds
- Borehole pressure
- Atmospheric pressure
- Standing water level
The data produced provides unparalleled evidence on the performance of containment systems and the site management plan.
As well as the ability to record high quality data, GGS has the experience and expertise to analyse and interpret the data, then present it in an easy to visualise format for the regulator, in the form of the GGS DataPack®. This assists site owners in avoiding protracted negotiations, saving both time and money.
Using GGS for the environmental monitoring of operational landfill sites provides the following benefits:
High levels of confidence in site data
- Early identification of abnormal activity
- Effective dialogue with regulator
- Cost-effective management strategies
- Early surrender of PPC or Waste Management licence
