Aerial thermography

Helicopter or basket thermography permits the logging of the most minute thermal variations on the surface of the waste landfill and/or adjacent land enabling the calculation of thermal energy yield from biogas output.

Emendo has performed numerous helicopter thermographies among which on landfills in Madrid, Barcellona, Milan and Turin.

Emendo has recently developed a low cost aerial scan system using a radio remote controlled drone equipped with a thermal micro camera thereby producing more economical thermographical analyses with greater speed and accuracy.

This service allows us to assess the surface emissions, any captation irregularities and the potential direction of any migration of biogas outside the site.

This aerial analysis can be accompanied by ground instrument tests so as to verify that the thermal variations registered match the effective biogas emissions on the ground.
