Reliable Landfill Wellhead Tuning using Micro GC Fusion

Landfill gas is mostly generated through the natural decaying process of organic waste in a landfill, which is composed of methane, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, oxygen and other gases. With the high methane concentration in landfill gas, typically ranging 45–60%1, landfill gas is a major contributor to global climate change when allowed to vent freely. Methane is also known for its high energy content. Capturing landfill gas for energy generation and consumption purposes, therefore, is beneficial for both environmental and commercial purposes.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) encourages effective use of biogas recovered from landfill emission, useful for electricity generation, heating for local communities etc.

This application note describes the advantages of using Micro GC Fusion Gas Analyzer to analyze landfill gas. With its accurate result and simple operation, Micro GC Fusion supports efficient wellhead tuning to optimize landfill gas quality.
