Metro Landfill Gas Processing Facility, Wisconsin
A solid waste disposal facility approached MV Technologies to provide a system that could treat 1,200 cfm of landfill gas being sent via pipeline to a Milwaukee wastewater treatment plant for use in turbines. H2S concentrations fluctuate anywhere from under 100 ppm up to 200 ppm. The pipeline requires a concentration of less than 100 ppm H2S.
When the concentrations are detected to be above the pipeline requirement the LFG is treated through two 12’ diameter by 12’ tall fiberglass vessels containing a total of 2,016 ft3 of Iron Sponge media. With minimal treatment requirements this system has a bed life exceeding 800 days, providing an economical solution with minimal maintenance and attention.
