Waste 2-for-1 Special: Organics Collection and Diversion

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course 1 - Organics Collection, Separation, and Processing

Organic waste conversion is quickly emerging as the leading technology for waste reuse and energy harvesting, and as such, many organizations are faced with the challenge of selecting the best collection, separation, and processing for their organization. Join Ernest Ruckert III, PE for the third session in our 5-Session Organics Management Master Class Series exploring the organic waste collection, separation, and processing technologies and systems available to you, and how to choose the best technology and systems for your organization.

In this online training webinar, we’ll explore the available organic waste collection, separation, and processing technologies and systems, key elements, applications, and current implementations. Join Ruckert as he opens our discussion with an overview of organic waste types, terminology, classification, and definition. Building upon this foundation, we’ll explore organic waste pre- and post-collection separation and storage equipment and systems (including at point of generation, at a central processing facility, and off-site options), and the factors influencing successful selection (e.g., the generator, compatibility with existing recycling programs and collection operations, collection equipment, organics processing technology, economics, and end use processed materials). Additionally, Ruckert will discuss the available collection and transport equipment options (new and converted), their current applications, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.  Finally, we will discuss the many organic waste processing technologies and systems available for processing and recovery of energy, and the current application and success of these based on real-world case studies.

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

  • Understanding and identification of the organic material classifications.
  • Understanding of available organics separation options (at the point of generation and at a central processing facility)
  • Understanding of available organics collection vehicle truck body options, and the advantages and disadvantages of each
  • Understanding of processing facilities successfully processing organics

Course 2 - Organics Diversion - Gas Collection and Control System

Organics diversion and its impact on landfill operations and landfill gas (LFG) generation and recovery has become increasingly important as the number of local communities and government officials looking for alternatives to traditional solid waste management practices increase. With several technologies and systems are available, understanding the impacts on operations, planning for these impacts, and choosing the right system for your organization is essential for success.

Join Daryl R. O’Dell, P.E., P.Eng., for the fourth session in our 5-Session Organics Management Master Class Series exploring organic diversion, its impact on landfill gas generation, how direct or indirect energy recovery from diverted organic materials can offset a reduction in energy sales, and how to implement planning that leads to system operations success.

In this online training webinar, we’ll explore organics diversion, its facility-specific needs, and its impact on landfilling practices and landfill gas generation and recovery. Specifically, O’Dell will address the relationship between organics diversion and the reduction in organic material intake leads to reductions in landfill gas generation and recovery, and ultimately, possible reductions in revenue… if not properly planned for. Addressing these issues, O’Dell will set forth how organizations can anticipate and plan for organics diversion’s impact, and ultimately offset any reduction in energy sales by direct or indirect energy recovery from diverted organic materials leading to short and long-term project and operations success. Additionally, we will discuss how a decrease in landfill gas flow may benefit some facilities, and explore the benefits of organics diversion related to regulators and local communities.

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

  • Understanding that needs are facility-specific
  • Understanding that a decreases in LFG flow may benefit some facilities/may cost others
  • Understanding of the benefits related to community and regulators
  • Understanding that planning is crucial for project success
  • Understanding that a decrease in organics will decrease LFG flow
