Waste & Tailings - Landfill Gas Management

After the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol in February 2005 the opportunity to capture and destroy methane gas created in landfill sites, and to then trade the destroyed methane as Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), arose.

We have been responsible for the design and construction of various Landfill Gas (LFG) extraction and conveyance systems.

Jones & Wagener has also been responsible, as part of a multi-disciplinary team, for the compilation of Project Identification Notes (PIN), compiling of Project Design Documents (PDD), submission of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for the gas extraction projects, assisting with supplying information required by the project validation team, submitting applications for host country approval and submitting applications for CDM Executive Board approval.
