Knowledge capital and expertise are what we strive for at A/C Control. As a top AC Repair provider of professional HVAC Contractors across Los Angeles, we are very aware of the speed at which our industry is technologically evolving, and our behavior on this planet is demanding newer means of heating, process cooling, and refrigeration. Our leadership has consistently kept their fingers on the pulse of the modern world, and one thing keeps coming up time and time again: trash.
Trash Is The Future
People generate trash. This trash is typically stored in landfills, which both emits and contains a plethora of hazardous gaseous compounds. Most of these compounds are greenhouse gases and contribute to the destruction of the planet. Within the scientific and industrial community, these gases are collectively termed as landfill gas (LFG - very complicated, we know).
However, these LFGs are incredibly valuable in terms of energy production. From emerging economies to the developed world, energy companies and state-run agencies are turning to the industrial world to develop industrial cooling, chemical processes, and industrial processes to convert LFGs into clean, usable energy. The main demand is that the gases are chilled prior to purification. Of the methods available, pipeline grade conversation is the most complicated method of purification, but we’re experts in it.
A/C Control’s Chief Engineer was instrumental in the design, construction, and implementation of several chilled water plants from the point of construction, and can, therefore, oversee any type of project. The most notable of his work is the chilled water system at the McCommas Bluff LFG plant in Dallas, Texas.
The LFG to pipeline grade natural gas processes, though complex and requiring high purity product, is revolutionizing the way that humans generate electricity. Ensuring the purification of LFGs occurs requires chilling the compounds in order to remove contaminants like moisture, sulfur, and other chemicals known to cause horrific damage to the environment and our physical health. Chilling is the most important step in developing the highest value and quality of end-product, and you can rely upon A/C Control’s engineers to design the best in these complex chilled water systems.
Why Is This Important?
Aside from the short- and long-term impacts that LFGs have on our physical health and the environment, our cities are generating so much trash that we’re running out of things to do with it. In cities like Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York, where there is a plethora of trash, efficient utilization of LFGs can not only mitigate the detriment to the environment but generate a huge amount of power.
Chilled water cooling systems and the integration of such technologies with LFGs in urban centers are going to be the norm by the middle of the 2020s. Integrating such tech into existing buildings is what we do best at A/C Control, one of the best commercial HVAC companies and air conditioning repair in Los Angeles.
