Title: Essex-Windsor Regional Landfill Gas Capture and Destruction Project Project Identifier: 2474-6209

Project Description

Integrated Gas Recovery Services Inc. (IGRS) operates the IGRS Essex-Windsor Regional Landfill Gas Capture and Destruction Project, a facility designed for the collection and flaring of landfill gas (LFG) originating at the Essex-Windsor Regional Landfill.
Landfill gas is collected from twenty-three vertical wells. The four inch diameter wells are individually valved and connected to six inch diameter above ground pipes, which then connect to an eighteen inch header pipe. The header pipe is buried approximately three feet below grade and conveys the gas to the plant area adjacent to the landfill.
The plant is equipped with a fan blower that provides vacuum to the wellfield in order to draw landfill gas from the waste to the plant. The blower conveys landfill gas to a flare where the gas is ignited and burned continuously. During the first half of 2009, an open flare was used for the project. Following facility upgrades completed in June 2009, an enclosed flare has been used for the project.
