Alessandria, Italy – Analysis Castelceriolo landfill site

 

Following some routine analyses on the Castelceriolo landfill site in 1987, biogas migration was registered in the adjacent soil.


Our initial assignment involved a risk assessment of the surrounding area and the development of a remedial project. We were subsequently charged with drawing up a remedial plan.


Of particular note was the use of aerial thermography to determine the migration direction/s and the ensuing decision to use a suction system which kicks in automatically at barometric fluctuations. This proved a highly innovative response.


We then formulated an integrated system of biogas captation and energy recovery.
