EPG was engaged to complete a detailed landfill gas mitigation design for a development proposed adjacent to a former basalt quarry, now operating landfill.
The design was complicated by the proposed large-spanning slabs and the uncertainty brought by the adjacent operating landfill. Early in the design process EPG identified the potential for unacceptable mitigation performance if the gas protection system was to rely purely on a passive system (wind and stack effects). Accordingly, EPG utilised our multi-disciplinary team to design an active landfill gas ventilation system to effectively dilute landfill gas beneath the development.
