Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The potential of a restored landfill site to act as a biomass source, providing fuel to supplement landfill gas-fuelled power stations, is examined, together with a comparison of the economics of power production from purpose-grown biomass versus waste-biomass.

TL;DR: In this paper, the composition and variation in three different biogas production plants were studied to provide information pertaining to its potential use as biofuel, and the results showed that the biogases in the different production plants varied, especially in trace compound content.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the potential for additional collection and utilization of landfill gas in the US and worldwide was estimated based on the landfill gas situation in the United States and worldwide, and a conservative estimate of methane generation of about 50 nm3 of methane per ton of municipal solid waste (MSW) landfilled was made.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Although landfill CH 4 emissions from developed countries have been largely stabilized, emissions from developing countries are increasing as more controlled (anaerobic) landfilling practices are implemented; these emissions could be reduced by accelerating the introduction of engineered gas recovery, increasing rates of waste minimization and recycling, and implementing alternative waste management strategies provided they are affordable, effective, and sustainable.
