Landfill Volumetric Measurement

Bureau Stephan offers safe Landfill Volumetric Measurement tools

Offering world-class solutions for the garbage disposal industry that are:
- Safe
- Efficient
- Accurate
- Cost-Effective

Landfill sites are hazardous due to accumulated toxic waste and gases and their periodic assessment requires specialized procedures.
Traditional techniques for calculating landfill volumes and subsidence are complicated, time consuming, costly and often inaccurate. Bureau Stephan UAV's are able to rapidly capture stereo imagery of landfill sites from a safe distance.
This imagery is processed into a dense point cloud using Bureau Stephan's alogorithms and photogrammetric software, generating a 3D map that may then be compared to previously existing landfill volumetric data.
Efficient and cost-effective, this technology is being used by Bureau Stephan's customers around the world to accurately calculate volumetric changes in landfills over time.
