A state-of-the-art landfill, recycling center, composting facility and collection fleet are located at the ACUA Environmental Park in Egg Harbor Township.
ACUA operates a 40 million gallon-per-day wastewater facility in Atlantic City, NJ, which is powered by renewable energy.
We are committed to seeking out the most sustainable and effective technologies to power our facilities and operations.
ACUA recently installed a new 40 x 12 ft. enclosed flare at our landfill to help decrease odors and improve efficiency.
New Flare Going Up
The flare is used to burn excess landfill gas that is not already used to generate electricity through ACUA’s existing
landfill gas to energy project. It converts methane found in landfill gas into carbon dioxide, a less harmful greenhouse gas.
The new flare will burn the excess landfill gas at a much higher efficiency than the older flare that was removed, which you can see through the images below had reached the end of its useful life. As a result, odors and emissions will be greatly reduced.
Old Fare Being Replaced
The project cost approximately $440,000 and is representative of the infrastructure improvements being made across the Authority’s facilities.
Over the past two years, ACUA has installed dozens of additional gas recovery wells to improve its landfill gas collection system as well as a temporary cap to cover open portions of the landfill. Both projects greatly improve gas collection efficiency and reduce odors.
