From the late 1980’s into the 2000’s, there were few choices for landfill gas analysers. What was available did not suit the needs of the landfill field technicians. Too often, the technician was forced to deviate or re-establish standard procedures to accommodate the shortcomings of the technology.
It was during this time as one of those field techs that Charles Elkins, spent the better part of 20 years reading gas wells, managing and operating gas systems and co-generation plants. He was frustrated with being forced to do things only one way and as a result Elkins conceived the idea of a field instrument that conformed more to the technician’s field practice.
The Envision portable Landfill Gas Analyser, EEW’s first product, was designed from the ground up to work for the landfill gas technician. Bringing innovative technologies together, EEW created a gas analyser that communicates with a wide range of hand-held field computers, maintains an open data structure without dictating how to take readings.
