The GA3000 static gas analyser from Geotech uses robust, field-proven technology giving, tight-budget economy to automated monitoring and measurement of methane-rich gas with 4-20mA local data outputs. Easily operator installed and calibrated, the compact, self-contained GA3000 analyzer has gas conditioning as standard. It analyses CH4, CO2, O2 and optionally, H2S at 0-5000ppm. Screen-displayed readings have user-selectable alarm settings. The GA3000 monitors landfill gas or AD biogas from waste food and/or wastewater sludge. More: The Geotech GA3000 static gas analyser for anaerobic digestion biogas, and landfill fixed-position gas analysis, monitoring and measurement suits tight-budget demand with top-quality design, components and engineering. It uses Geotech's robust, field-proven technology to bring low-cost to automated fixed-position monitoring of methane-rich biogas. Easily operator installed, user field-calibrated and zeroed, the compact, self-contained, single-cabinet GA3000 has gas conditioning as standard. It continuously analyses methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2) and optionally, hydrogen sulphide (H2S) at 0-5000ppm. They are measured, at user-set timings, and supply data via three or four, 4-20mA local outputs. Users also set alarm levels and can see screen-displayed readings on a large, clear, backlit display. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is increasingly being used in waste processing and biogas production to recycle food and farm waste, avoid landfill and generate biogas and energy from waste. These AD installations, large and small, can benefit from continuous gas analysis to optimise AD, maximise output and ensure safety and compliance with environmental guidelines and legislation. Many landfill operators also seek to optimise landfill gas output and electricity generation. For each sector, reliable, proven, economic gas analysis and monitoring technology can be essential. This robust, reliable and cost-effective system provides continuous and accurate sampling of methane, carbon dioxide and oxygen from a single sample point. Hydrogen sulphide sampling is a GA3000 option. User field calibration of the analyser and exchange of the optional hydrogen sulphide (H2S) sensor reduce operational costs. With no training required for operators and with the GA3000 engineered for low ownership cost, this ISO 17025 calibration-accredited unit is designed for quick and easy self-installation in any country, worldwide. User relocation of the GA3000 is just as easy. With gas conditioning included as standard, to ensure top quality gas analysis, the user-replaceable H2S sensor and analyser 'Hot Swap' capability offers zero downtime. The GA3000 adds to Geotech's static gas analysis range which includes the current Automated Extraction Monitoring System (AEMS) Geotech AEMS that has more extensive application options with, for example, multiple sampling points, data inputs and 4-20mA local data outputs, Profibus and Modbus comms options, Ethernet and Internet connectivity, data logging and transfer. More: For applications not requiring the extensive capability of Geotech AEMS, the GA3000 now delivers exactly what many users need at the very attractive package price they want - available on application.

2nd Resource Revolution leader interview with Mike Walters, John LewisPartnership

In the second in our FCC Environment-sponsored Resource Revolution leader video interview series, John Lewis Partnership's recycling and waste operations manager, Mike Walters, offers a compelling retail perspective on how corporate resource efficiency is reshaping the waste supply chain. Following the publication of edie's recent White Paper, he forecasts a dramatic change for the waste sector in 20 years' time, in which more on-site diversion and treatment solutions are adopted to cut down on logistics and where disposal costs for businesses are replaced by income streams. "I don't think there will be something called waste, I think there will be end-of-first-life materials ... that's a phrase we are adopting now within our business."
