SCS Engineers – Engineering Solutions
Environmental Consultants and Contractors
About the Company:
SCS Engineers®, is an environmental consulting and contracting firm serving public and private clients across the nation and around the world. Their core capabilities are in solid and hazardous waste management, renewable energy, remediation, and environmental compliance. They work to prevent, mitigate and remediate environmental events, and use their environmental regulatory systems knowledge to help shorten project timelines and stay on budget.
SCS Engineers is producing technologies and programs that lower industrial operating costs and reduce greenhouse gases for private and public clients establishing goals to reduce their environmental impact. The technologies and programs are finding footholds in the agricultural, industrial, and manufacturing sectors as municipalities and companies want to reach climate change goals without passing all of the expense to consumers. SCS clients entrust them with the management of more than 35 million metric tons of anthropogenic CO2e greenhouse gases every year. SCS collects and beneficially uses or destroys enough to offset greenhouse gas emissions from 7.4 million passenger cars annually.
SCS Engineers specializes in the assessment, design, permitting, construction, operation and maintenance, and monitoring of sustainable environmental solutions and facilities. Their clients depend on the combination of SCS professional expertise, SCS leadership, and our roster of National Experts who consistently bring value to each solution.
About the Solution:
SCS Engineers has one of the longest and most successful Biogas practices in the United States primarily in landfill gas to energy (LFGE) and digester gas-to-energy (DGE). SCS Energy®, specializes in waste gas utilization; combined with expertise in solid waste management and compliance. They have experienced engineering and field personnel perform all work, and have an exemplary safety record. SCS designs, constructs, and operates more LFGE and DGE facilities than any other engineering firm in the nation.
SCS works with landfill and digester owners, operators and developers – utilities and governments – renewable energy end-users – and the agricultural and waste industries. All are interested in achieving renewable energy goals, reducing greenhouse gases, and creating useful by-products from waste with SCS plants. SCS builds systems that power universities, wastewater treatment plants, generate renewable natural gas sales, support electric utilities, and dairies, all moving to renewable energy.
SCS Engineers brings value to the design-build with their energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) expertise in monitoring and restricting the release of methane into the atmosphere. Their understanding of regional market-based emission control programs, carbon offsets, emission performance standards, and pipeline construction all serve to enhance their feasibility studies, design, build, testing, and operations-maintenance.
SCS provides expertise in all aspects of project development, including:
Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
Anaerobic Digester Associated Technology:
NOTE: There are several technology types that are used as part of an integrated manure management system that includes an anaerobic digester and are not applicable to manure management in other cases. The impact of these technologies on the critical indicators are represented as those of an entire anaerobic digester system.
- Long usable life and can be run reliably
- Creates energy and generates environmental credits
- Requires proper preparation of the feedstock
- Requires other technologies for energy utilization
- Requires other technologies for digestate handling
- Proper feeding & system monitoring is required to avoid system downtime
- Proven technology for odor control, GHG reduction and pathogen reduction
SCS Engineers has recently been added to the solutions catalog. Newtrient will continue to work with SCS Engineers to refine the cost and performance information. Newtrient will post additional information and develop a 9-Point score as more information becomes available and as dairy installations come on line.
