Condensate Treatment Pilot Program
A 9-week pilot program utilizing biophysical activated sludge (PAC), Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), and Ion Exchange Resin was conducted at the Prima Deshecha Landfill to determine effectiveness of different processes in treating onsite-generated condensate.
Treatment methods were determined successful in treating onsite condensate for organic parameters as well as Per- and Polyfluorinated Substances (PFAS); permitting with South Orange County Wastewater Authority (SOCWA) and City of San Clemente.
Methane Detection Pilot
Monitoring for methane at Zone 1 for Prima Deshecha Landfill utilizing drone technology.
Pilot program in progress to determine the feasibility of drone technology as a potential alternative to conventional methods for monitoring.
Surveying with drones utilizes less personnel and less equipment which is lower labor intensive and significantly improves the factor of safety for this field operation.
Capistrano Greenery Horse Manure Pilot
Capistrano Greenery began accepting horse manure from the San Juan Capistrano Equestrian Coalition in February 2022. Incoming tonnage started at approximately 10 tons per week, has since increased to about 40 tons per week. All windrows with manure have passed all laboratory testing.
