Environmental Management Software ToolDesign of an Environmental Management Software Tool

Client: South Dublin County Council

Location:  Arthurstown Landfill, Kill, Co. Kildare, Ireland

Capital Value: n/a

Key Facts:
Data capture, database recording with GIS capabilities, interpretation, automatic report generation of all landfill data for licence compliance.  Arthurstown is the largest landfill in Ireland, generating significant volumes of environmental data which requires interpretation & reporting to the Environmental Protection Agency (IRE).

Data capture on site uses data loggers to download data into spreadsheet and SQL databases facilitating automated report generation and storage of data in GIS formats.

Data capture from laboratories allows the laboratory to enter data into proprietary spreadsheets which validate data prior to emailing data to centralised data bases.  Data capture from PLCs e.g. weighbridges, SBR leachate treatment plants, weather stations etc. using direct links and CSV export files.

FT has designed an environmental reporting application for this landfill which creates generic quarterly and annual reports for the Environmental Protection Agency (IRE).

Generic report writing is straightforward to prepare however in relation to licence compliance there is a requirement to interrogate the data and in the case of non- compliances explain why such events have occurred.  What is unique about the FT software is that it was written by scientists and engineers and structured in such a way as to allow live interrogation of the graphical and tabular data base reports.

  • Automatic importation routines were developed for easy importation of data
  • A web application was developed to provide detailed reporting across the disciplines
  • Spatial reporting with full drill-down analysis allows to zone in on a particular region for analysis
  • Compliance reporting with reference to worldwide emission limits
  • Reports can be customised by choice of analytes, stations, sampling periods, etc.
  • Export options to MS Word, MS Excel and PDF
  • Reports link to in-housed (GIS Department) developed ARC GIS Online system

Data analysis of bin lifts and weighting patterns was performed.  Optimisation of the service was carried out using GIS mapping of existing service routes.

Review of Collection Service Using a combination of geographical information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), and database analysis; FTC provided Dublin City Council with a comprehensive daily analysis of each collection route including:

  • Map of area collected by each crew each day
  • Number of residential and commercial customers collected per day by each crew
  • Average number and type of residential & commercial lifts per day
  • Average weight per customer/waste stream
  • Presentation and participation rate per route/day
  • Average daily weight of waste collected by each vehicle
  • Number of trips to disposal facility per day
  • Length of day for driver and lifters
  • Analysis of crew productivity.

Optimisation of Refuse Collection Service Optimised waste collection routes were designed using the following parameters:

  • Alternative weekly collection of residual and organic waste
  • Waste generation levels as a function of socio-economic factors
  • Effect of seasonal variations in weight and presentation rates
  • Optimal daily mixture of residential and commercial customers
  • Commercial customers received multiple collections
  • Minimum number of vehicles and crews to deliver service without affecting quality of service
  • Minimum number of spare vehicles
  • Vehicles collected 90%+ of vehicle capacity each day
  • Crews worked an average of more that 30 hours a week
  • Reduced carbon footprint.
