Waste Management
BalanceCO2 combines waste management experience with GHG emission reduction skills better manage Municipal and Agricultural waste. Long been considered as a liability in past decades these wastes are now considered as an energy source. Higher prices of fossil fuels have brought renewed interest in managing the waste produced as an alternative fuel for the next generation.
BalanceCO2 staff has been consulting for the last 20 years in managing Solid Waste with Engineered Solutions of:
Landfill Gas Capture
Waste Gasification






And, we offer a complete range of services to complete your Waste Management Project. Whether you need an engineering study, full project implementation, partial assistance with construction supervision or complete operations and maintenance, BalanceCO2 provides the service you require.
Engineering Study

Our combined waste management experience with GHG emission reduction knowledge can provide your organization with a complete engineering study which determines the method and feasibility of achieving GHG reductions and whether the project will be a viable source of revenue producing energy. To meet your GHG emission reduction targets, monitoring all the essential criteria to determine that the reduction are indeed occurring is paramount. The international GHG experience of BalanceCO2 waste management engineering services

Implementation

Looking for a company to make your waste management project happen? BalanceCO2 will provide complete implementation services. We know what a timely successful implementation means to your GHG emission reductions and that project delays mean lost emission reductions and lost energy generation revenue. BalanceCO2 has the experience to work with your organization in meeting the implementation goals.

Construction Supervision

To be a successful project means having hands on supervision that can avoid untimely delays and keep that waste management project on target. Our international experience with solid waste management projects helps provide the direction and management a project needs

Waste Management-Farm Energy

Today, many of the farms are specialized and much larger, some even owned by corporations. These "farm machines" are designed to produce in bulk and the farm waste problem began to mount. So much animal waste was being spread that it began to runoff into nearby stream, rivers, and other water supplies. In conjunction with these problems associated with farm waste and what do with all of it, some people began to realize how much energy is wrapped up in the waste. The anaerobic digestion of animal waste produces "biogas". Biogas is typically made up of 70% methane and 30% carbon dioxide. Since methane is easily combusted, it makes for a good source of energy. There are many ways to produce biogas from farm waste, whether the waste come from pigs, chickens, or cows. But, what do you do with this energy on a farm? Is it cost feasible to construct a miniature plant to make the biogas? If the energy can be used and the price tag can be justified and it solves a waste disposal problem, then making biogas appears to be a great option for farmers. In fact, the U.S. Congress may not allow solving the problem to remain "optional" much longer as the pollution issue become more visible. Balanceco2 will work with a Farmer to indentify the Solution, Implement and fund the project. Balanceco2 will work with the farmer to use the biogas to produce electricity, fertilizer, and other soil additives. Here is how their system works: First, the farm waste is feed to pre-mixing tanks where it is heated to 100 F (38 C) which is the optimal temperature for the digestion (or breaking down) of the waste to take place. Next, the feed is sent to reaction tanks where the waste is broken down and gives off biogas. The methane from the reactors is used to power an engine which turns a generator to produce electricity.
