and Trash to Energy Noise
Some examples of facility types and
sources of sound where we have provided acoustical consulting services.
Recycling Centers Can Be
our earth's resources.
Everyone agrees that recycling of paper, plastic, cans and glass
bottles is good for the environment but it can get noisy if abatement
is not considered. Just think about how much noise is generated
on garbage pickup days when your single bin of recyclables hits the
truck. Now imagine the sound when a large truck dumps its full load at
the recycling center. We've measured and created models of
the impact sounds made from these sources and have used this data for
developing noise abatement strategies, such as placement of sound
walls or building designs, to keep it quiet for the neighbors.
Landfill Noise Control
all generate it, need to get rid of it, but... New landfills
and expansions of existing ones are
overwhelmingly opposed by residents in most communities. Noise is
always a major concern of residents near them.
however, with proper consideration for truck traffic within the
landfill and strategic placement of berms near the operating cells,
sound generated by landfill operations can be controlled to acceptable
levels within the community.
Trash To Energy Power Plant
solution for two issues. Waste elimination and electric
power: Perhaps one of the best solutions to help
minimize landfill waste while also serving as fuel for generating
electricity. This type of facility has noise sources similar
to both landfill operations and power
plants. Careful noise
abatement designs can be utilized to help keep these plants in harmony
