Descripción
Fugitive emissions from the surface of landfills constitute an important source of carbon dioxide and methane that are emitted to the atmosphere and contribute to the greenhouse effects. Quantifying those emissions can give valuable information, not only, on the amount of those gases which are released into the atmosphere but on their environmental consequences. They can also help to evaluate another aspects related to the landfill management like the seal efficiency or the gas recovery. Quantifying fugitive emissions is not an easy task, due to the heterogeneity of the waste into the landfills, their huge dimensions and the influence of others factors like the site meteorology. Several measurement methods as well as prediction models for determine this type of emissions can be found in the bibliography. Several measurement methods as well as prediction models for quantifying this type of emissions can be found in the bibliography. In this study an approach to the method described on the Guidance on monitoring landfill gas surface emissions (EA 2010), will be followed in order to obtain the fugitive emissions of several landfill sites in Spain. Some preliminary results obtained in two landfills near Madrid, those who are referred to as A and B landfills, show differences between the emissions measured and the values calculated using theoretical models.
