    Highbury and SUEZ Landfill

    Highbury, South Australia:
    Lo-CalTM HT Flare and LFG Migration Control

    Due to decreasing gas volume and quality on an EDL power generation site, an innovative flaring system was required to continue controlling migration of LFG for the long term as the power generator was decommissioned. The project involved controlling the LFG from two landfill sites, termed the Highbury and SUEZ landfills, adjacent each other but linked by a common gas collection system. Houses were present on the northern, western and southern boundaries, with a high risk of off-site LFG migration due to the sandy geology of the area.

    As the power generation system was decommissioned, Biogas Systems installed an elevated flare to control the LFG and provide data to form the design of the permanent flaring system. The final design was a 600 m3/h Lo-CalTM HT flare, the largest of its type in Australia. The flare was successfully installed and commissioned, and has been effectively controlling the migration of LFG. It is expected the flare will be able to operate for over 10 years, providing a cost effective solution for the client.

    Garden Island Landfill

    Port Adelaide, South Australia:
    Lo-CalTM HT Flare

    Biogas Systems has provided the first Lo-CalTM flare into the Australian market. The Garden Island landfill, located in Port Adelaide, South Australia, was closed in 2004 after operation for close to 40 years. Previous gas extraction systems failed due to a range of issues including gas quality and flare operational issues. Environmental compliance of the site was required to be met, therefore a gas extraction system was developed with a flaring system that could operate with low gas quality over a relatively long period of time.

    A 250 m3/h Lo-CalTM HT flare was installed, the first of its kind in Australia, demonstrating its unique ability. It has functioned efficiently from the time it was commissioned and is expected to meet all requirements in terms of environmental compliance and generating carbon credits.

    Novo Mesto Landfill Site

    Slovenia:
    HT Flare and Gas Booster System

    This project located in Slovenia involved designing and manufacturing of a 600 m3/h HT fully ATEX ground flare and duty standby gas boosters for power generation.

    The contract comprised the following components:
    • Control panel
    • Gas Monitoring system for 5 gas lines
    • Gas cleanup system
    • Telemetry system, data logging, site control system, remote monitoring and interrogation
    • Remote start stop facility from client office

    The project is ongoing has been a great success owing to the ability to provide a robust and technically advanced system that can be monitored in real time.

    Newford Valley Landfill Site

    Stoke on Trent, UK:
    Lo-CalTM HT Ground Flare

    This project involved the design and construction of a fully ATEX compliant 300 m3/h HT Lo-CalTM ground flare for a very old closed landfill which had residential dwellings in close proximity on three sides of the site, with gas quality being relatively low and migrating off-site. The methane concentration of the biogas varied from between 13 to 20 %v/v. The new Lo-CalTM flare system was used to provide complete combustion of the low methane concentration biogas while maintaining a flame temperature of 1,000°C.

    Kingsweston Landfill Site

    Avonmouth, UK:
    Lo-CalTM HT Ground Flare

    This project involved the design and construction of a fully ATEX compliant 100 m3/h HT Lo-CalTM ground flare for a very old closed landfill. The methane concentration of the biogas varied between 13 to 40 %v/v. The new Lo-CalTM flare system was used to provide complete combustion of the low methane concentration biogas while maintaining a flame temperature of 1,000°C.
