Transfer mechanisms of landfill gas in landfill sites

Study period:2001 - 2003

Research overview:
It is required to find out the proper indicators that determine scientifically the term for closing of a landfill site. As landfill gas generated through biodegradation of wastes may reflect stabilization of wastes directly, so its amount and composition can be candidates of the indicators. However, the gas is not necessarily emitted into the atmospheric air as it is. The mechanisms such as adsorption and diffusion of methane and other gases are examined in various waste layers and cover soil layers.
