How Methane Gas is Captured and Used to Generate Power
Landfill gas is made up of 40-60 percent Methane and 40 percent carbon dioxide. Not a healthy combination. The gas is a result of decomposing microorganisms. Becuase these gasses can be both a blessing and curse, there are monitoring systems in place to watch the levels of gasses being produced. The curse is that these gasses are hazardous and the blessing is they can also be used to generate electricity.
Flame ionization detectors are used to monitor levels. It is by law that(The Clean Air Act) that landfills must install monitoring devices. Surface, sub surfaces, and the ambient air must be tested. Owners and operators of landfills must ensure that methane gas levels do not exceed 25 percent.
Landfills that are utilizing processes to harness the methane gas have installed on site, both steam and micro turbines, and in some instances, fuel cells. Electricity is made right on the site and is sold to various power companies. Pipes can also be utilized to send the gas through natural gas pipelines. Another hazardous waste that landfills produce is leachates. However, this danger can be remedied by evaporation as a result of the steam turbines heat.
Another advantage is that the environment is improved by using systems like these described above. The greatest impact is the lowering of greenhouse gasses. One more major benefit is that the capturing of methane gasses and selling the gas will lower energy costs.
Though the methods used to capture methane gasses is expensive and without some controversy which is not in the realm of this particular article to hash out, at least there is some technology at work trying to find solutions to the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink. And any solution that moves us closer to weaning our country off oil is a positive step in the right direction.
The Composition of Hazardous Waste
Hazardous waste is one of the leading causes of pollution in America. It is destroying our rivers, lakes, streams, and oceans. All of which are vital to a healthy environment. Though many people are working to alleviate this problem there is much, as individuals, we can do to help in the fight to keep our natural resources clean and protected.
The EPA has put together an easy to understand pamphlet of the more common hazardous waste found in our households and storage areas. The list mentions such items as:
- Light bulbs
- Pool chemicals
- Ant baits
- Starter fluids
- Cockroach sprays
It is very important to recognize these materials and know how to handle them. Make sure you read all labels so you are familiar with the proper use and disposal of these materials. If you are using bug sprays, for example, know the chemicals that are inside the can and make sure the area you are spraying is properly ventilated or wait until it is safe to return. Our landfills are full of items that are causing havoc. Cell phones and cell phone batteries are a huge problem. The chemical from these products can leach into our underground water sources and contaminate the water we drink. So think about what you are using, where you are disposing, and help keep our ecosystems free of pollution.
