About this book

Landfilling of waste is an international issue of environmental and political concern, and should be viewed as part of an integrated waste management system. Landfilling of waste: Biogas is the third in a series of reference books which provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and identify new directions in landfill technology and landfill research. The editors have collected contributions from authors of international reputation in landfill. The book begins with a description of gas generation and composition, covers the environmental aspects, discusses gas production, extraction and transportation, treatment and utlization, emissions and safety, and ends with a selection of case studies.
