Artist's Description

Fresh Kills Park, New York. A site that in 30 years promises to become a huge park. For now, what we see are the left overs of a famous land fill that use to be the stereotype of the 5th borough of New York City. (staten island.

According the Freshkills Park facebook page this is a flare station. There are three on Site. When Maintenance must be performed on the landfill gas collection system, excess landfill gas (which is otherwise collected, methane extracted and sold) is sent to the flare station. Each flare station consists of two flares, which combust the landfill gas at a temperature between 1600-200F. Landfill has is almost 50% carbon dioxide, and with the use of both the land fill has collection system and the flare stations, gas emissions and other hazardous air pollutants are reduced on site by almost 100%
