Landfills provide challenges and opportunities for the responsible management, control, and beneficial use of the gas that is generated at these facilities. Effective landfill gas (LFG) management is essential to complying with environmental regulations related to greenhouse gas emissions and necessary to maximize gas collection and re-use. Sanborn Head understands these priorities and offers extensive experience in designing, permitting, and troubleshooting LFG management systems to achieve facility compliance and operational goals.

We provide a range of services for the responsible and productive management of LFG, from greenhouse gas emissions estimates to strategic design of LFG collection and control systems. We also manage and analyze LFG wellfield data to develop recommendations for operational improvements. Our team has a strong track record of successful projects involving landfill gas-to-energy, assisting our clients with turning a potential liability into a productive asset.

At the foundation of our expertise in LFG management is the diversity of our engineering and environmental capabilities needed for these projects, combined with diligence and responsiveness to our clients’ expectations.
