Event Details

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity provided by the SWANA Pacific BC & Yukon Chapter in Kelowna, BC.


This SWANA Certified Course is customized for BC and is developed by Sperling Hansen Associates (SHA), SWANA BC staff, and Kelowna Landfill Gas Operators. It will cover both design and operational principles applied in BC, and the basics for those working at a location where there is an active landfill gas collection, utilization and/or destruction. This course is also suited to those who may also need more than just the basics for managing these operations (Landfill Gas safety, regulations and costing).

The morning modules will detail the why and how to for Landfill Gas (LFG) collection (design and operational considerations), LFG safety, the different systems being used and how to work with the regulation and the regulators. These sessions will be led by Dr. Ali Abedini, P.Eng. from Sperling Hansen Associates. A course outline and course content handout will be supplied with the course delivery.

The afternoon modules will include hands on operational aspects including monitoring for process optimization and for regulatory compliance. Kelowna Landfill Gas certified staff will provide an outline of the collection and monitoring system along with an on-site field inspection of the works and the monitoring regime. Operators with an interest in well head monitoring, system balancing, monitoring equipment considerations, flares and gas field safety will benefit from this on-site learning opportunity.


As there will be a facility tour, all attendees please ensure they bring their PPE (steel toed boots, a reflective safety vest, and safety eyewear).
