Exothermic Reactions in Elevated Temperature Landfills: Field Observations & Laboratory Experiments Webinar



Untitled Document

Date/Time: Now Available On Demand!

Cost: $79.00

Description:

There are a number of landfills in North America that have been reported to exhibit elevated landfill gas temperatures. In some cases, these landfills appear to be undergoing exothermic chemical reactions in the absence of oxygen. The nature of these reactions is the subject of ongoing research. The objective of this webinar is to describe the chemical reactions that may occur in elevated temperature landfills (ETLFs) and the expected gaseous, liquid and solid reaction products. Liquid and gas composition as reported at selected ETLFs will be compared to liquids and gases produced in exothermic and anaerobic chemical reactions involving materials similar to those present in municipal solid waste.
At the completion of this webinar, participants will have an understanding of:

  • The types of exothermic chemical reactions that may occur in landfills at temperatures above the range at which biological activity is inhibited
  • The expected gaseous, liquid and solid products produced during anaerobic and exothermic chemical reactions
  • How to interpret gas and liquid composition measurements from ETLFs
  • The difference between exothermic reactions in ETLFs and landfill “fires” and “smoldering combustion”; and
  • Published literature on the thermal reactions of biomass-like substrates that may provide insight into ETLF phenomena

Speakers:

  • Dr. Morton Barlaz, Ph.D., P.E. - North Carolina State University
  • Dr. Craig Benson, Ph.D. - University of Virginia
  • Dr. Marco J. Castaldi - The City College (CCNY) of City University of New York (CUNY)
  • Scott Luettich, P.E. - Geosyntec Consultants
