Thermal Destruction in a Landfill Gas Flare
This process may result in a requirement for removal and disposal of sludges it produces. Procedures must be in
place that ensure that the identification of any scaling or clogging within the pack tower, and for subsequent
management and disposal of sludge arising.
4. Where relatively high effluent concentrations of ammoniacal-N are accepted (e.g. 100-200 mg/l), greatly
reduced aeration rates can be achieved. Leachate will require secondary biological treatment if effluent discharge
to watercourses is an option, the removal of ammoniacal-N to very low levels during stripping can result in
nitrogen deficiency in secondary stages of treatment
5. Release of ammonia gas in exhaust air may be controlled by thermal destruction in a landfill gas flare. When
considering the utilisation of landfill gas flares for thermal destruction the impact on the emissions from the
flare have to be considered.
