Research Project: Improved Ghg Inventory Methods for California

Location: Morris, Minnesota

Project Number: 3645-11000-003-01
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Feb 01, 2007
End Date: Jun 01, 2010

Develop and validate a new method designed to estimate methane emissions from landfills taking into account the oxidation of methane in cover soil and other parameters.

Determine data needs, consult available data bases and validate data. Create a field and laboratory validated methane oxidation sub-model. Develop an integrated landfill methane mass balance model for California. This model will include the following sub-models: Methane Generation, Methane Recovery, Methane Emission, Methane Oxidation, Methane Migration, Change in Storage and Methane Balance. Field scale validation will be done at a minimum of two sites in California. Statistically analyze the field monitoring data to determine emission trends and dependent variables.
