Rental Landfill Gas Monitors

Landfill gas is made up primarily of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), but small quantities of other gases are also present. The EPA has determined that some of these compounds are carcinogenic or associated with non-carcinogenic health effects.

Specialized landfill gas (LFG) systems are used to extract, collect and control gas migration and surface emissions. LFG field monitoring is important for the safe and successful operation of LFG systems.

Portable landfill gas monitors aid landfill technicians test for emissions, and acquire and record data. This information is used to minimize gas migration and maximize gas recovery. Geotech rents Landtec GEM monitors, the best in the industry.
