Abstract

[automatically translated] Proper management of controlled landfills, for disposal of municipal waste, in operation and post-operative, requires the control of the potential impacts they may determine the different environmental compartments concerned. Among these, the production of biogas resulting from metabolic processes of transformation of the organic fraction of the waste, requires, on the one hand, the implementation of effective extraction systems, by means of which it is also possible to produce thermal energy and / or electricity, the other , control of fugitive emissions into the atmosphere, contributing to the deterioration of the air surrounding environment characteristics of the landfill site, as well as the increase in greenhouse gases. Furthermore, the extent of these emissions allows you to perform a correct product biogas budget to landfill and maximize the amount recovered in piped shape. Different modes can be adopted for estimating fugitive emissions; in particular, those directed with the flow chamber is present of particular interest, both for the speed and simplicity of execution, both for the level of measuring accuracy, which allows to highlight the presence of any leak through the surface coverage of the landfill. In the note, after a presentation of the methods used to evaluate, direct and indirect of the biogas produced in landfills designed for the disposal of municipal waste,
