Methane oxidation through landfill cover soils: An engineering perspective

, : Methane oxidation through landfill cover soils: An engineering perspective. Soil and Crop Science Society of Florida Proceedings 64: 59-65

Landfill gas (LEG) typically contains 500 to 600 mL L-1 CH, and 400 to 500 mL L-1 CO2. Methane is generated by methanogenic bacteria in anaerobic conditions that are present inside landfills. LEG can either be vented to the atmosphere, collected and burned using flares, or used to generate energy. An alternative way to mitigate CH4 emissions to the atmosphere is the oxidation of CH4 as it escapes through landfill cover soils.
