Project

Reducing landfill methane emissions by landfill aeration

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Landfills generate methane, which when emitted to the atmosphere contributes to climate change. Methane is also explosive when mixed with air, and is thus a risk to human health. Many years of field investigations at Hedeland landfill have shown lateral landfill gas migration, which pose a risk to people living next to the landfill. The overall objective of this project is to test if landfill aeration can be used to reduce landfill methane emissions. The project is carried out in collaboration with the Danish consulting company NIRAS.
