Solid Waste

A Leader in Landfill Siting, Design, Operations, and Closure

With our nationwide resume involving all phases of solid waste management, EA has compiled a significant track record of successfully completed projects. Our engineering services extend from 10 year solid waste management plans to landfill siting and permitting to landfill design, construction management, and final certification. In the past 5 years alone, we have provided more than $30 million in solid waste management services for municipal, state, private, and federal clients. We have worked on more than 100 landfill sites throughout the country, including more than 50 solid waste sites in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

A Partner for the Future Solid Waste Management Planning

EA works closely with our clients to develop viable, cost-effective strategies for managing their solid waste. We perform technical evaluations of waste management options through forecasting and economic valuation, regulatory interpretations, and waste stream and infrastructure analyses. We examine methods to achieve source reductions (i.e., recycling) to utilize new technologies (i.e., pyrolysis) and to improve cell management with techniques including mining/reclamation, leachate recycling, and landfill gas recovery. We engineer needed facilities such as homeowner recycling convenience centers, leachate collection systems, and access roads and scales.

An Innovator in Landfill Gas and Biogas Project Services

EA specializes in addressing the environmental requirements of landfill and other biogas recovery and utilization projects. To determine the feasibility of a project, EA assesses the potential for gas generation to determine fuel availability over the life of a potential project. We work closely with our clients to identify the most expeditious permitting strategy, establish the most favorable permit conditions, and maximize the revenue potential of carbon reduction credits. We engineer landfill/biogas collection systems to achieve the highest efficiency and most consistent delivery of fuel gas.
