Solar SparkŪ Vent Flares are widely used for odor and emission control at passive outlets, such as cap vents, leachate stations, or from gas outbreaks at the surface of active or closed landfill cells. Solar SparkŪ Vent Flares are typically used on landfill gas vents, wells, or leachate system clean-out lines to combust flammable gases.

Solar SparkŪ Vent Flares combust flammable gases at low ambient pressure without the need for blowers or external power.

LTL Biogas Flares are widely used for odor and emission control when vacuum assist is required, such as cap vents, leachate stations, or from gas outbreaks at the surface of active or closed landfill cells.

These units are ruggedly constructed for long life and feature solar-powered continuous ignition with very low maintenance requirements. Skid and trailer mounting options are available to adapt to any situation.

Viridian America's line of pneumatic pumps are the choice of many landfill managers and operators for vertical pumping applications. Their rugged, corrosion resistant design is ideal for pumping highly corrosive leachate even at elevated temperatures. In addition, they are fully automatic, self-regulating and require no external form of control. The Viridian America pneumatic pump is the most durable pneumatic pump available on the market today.

Typical applications include: 

  • Vertical extraction wells 
  • Landfill gas extraction wells
  • Condensate sumps
  • Recovery wells at remediation sites
