Waste 2-for-1 Special: Gas-to-Energy


Course 1 - From Gas to Renewable Energy

Join Mike Michels, V.P. of Cornerstone Environmental Group, LLC, in exploring today’s innovation and application of biogas (beyond electric generation and boiler fuel) as new solutions benefiting your bottom-line, and mapping a plan for tomorrow.

Today, energy is at the forefront of national security, national economics and independence from foreign markets. While the USA struggles with the development and management of traditional energy (e.g., foreign oil, emissions from coal fired power plants, etc.) there are a wealth of opportunities in non-traditional fuel (e.g., natural gas, biogas, waste to energy, etc.) worth our exploration and application.

This presentation will focus on landfill gas-to-energy. In use since the late 70’s, landfill gas-to-energy projects are on the rise with more than 400 landfill gas-to-energy (LFGTE) projects in operation (including greenhouses, boilers, engines, turbines, automobiles, liquid evaporation, and many other applications). These projects have proven that LFG is an effective, dependable and consistent base fuel. Despite these effective and successful existing projects, today thousands of landfills still simply flare off their LFG having either not properly considered the gas asset.

Specifically, this presentation will summarize historic and today’s LFGTE projects, look at the economic factors that support and disincentives these projects. In addition, this presentation will explore new technologies that have the potential to change the historic poor financials at some undeveloped projects and turn them into gems going forward. These new technologies include, but are not limited to BioCNG, solar capping in conjunction with LFG to electricity, and many other applications.

Learning Objectives 
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Understand the most common ways to convert LFG to energy (LFGTE).
  • Understand the challenges incurred when developing LFGTE.
  • Understand capital, O&M costs and financial proforma for the most common LFGTE.
  • Learn new technologies in development to more effectively convert LFGTE.

Course 2 - Landfill Gas to Energy

In today's economic environment, firms more than ever are looking to streamline their operations, minimize costs, and reduce delays. As alternative energy is becoming increasingly popular and profitable, many firms are finding that air permitting can have significant impacts on these goals.

Join Kay Gilmer of Cornerstone Environmental Group LLC for a discussion of air quality New Source Review (NSR) permitting, the issues, and recommendations for early project planning tools to minimize unexpected project delays resulting from NSR permitting requirements. Through a discussion of landfill gas to energy (LFGTE) examples, Gilmer will guide the audience through the key points of New Source Review (NSR) as they pertain to an alternative energy project and illustrate how this air permitting program can have very significant impacts on a project’s budget and schedule. Too often these impacts go unidentified until too late into the project’s development to allow for effective decision making. This presentation illustrates how an early assessment of air quality permitting and regulatory requirements can guide the project’s planning phase and beyond.

Attending this Webcast you will take away a clear understanding of how key terms within the NSR program are defined and what are important to project planning. You will be provided a detailed guide to conducting one of the most important steps in the project, the development of a Facility-Wide Emissions Inventory, and what the results can tell you. Most importantly, you will walk away with an understanding of your options in terms of project design, operation and permitting that can assist you in any project planning you may undertake.

Learning Objectives 
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Understanding of basic NSR requirements
  • Understanding of how to develop an facility wide emission inventory and why it is important
  • Understanding of the permitting process and options
  • Awareness of air permitting impacts on project budget and schedule
