Climate Trends Due to Increasing Greenhouse Gases

Computer Design of Landfill Methane Migration Control
Computer programs for the design of methane migration control systems around sanitary landfills are described. These programs allow the effectiveness of individual designs to be evaluated...

Heat Treatment and Anaerobic Digestion of Refuse
Alkaline heat treatment was evaluated as a pretreatment process for increasing the anaerobic digestibility of municipal refuse. The goal was an increased methane yield from refuse lignocellulose....

Modeling Toxicity in Methane Fermentation Systems
Wastewater treatment using anaerobic methane fermentation offers several significant advantages over aerobic methods, but is considered unreliable when treating wastewaters containing...

Temperature Effects: Methane Generation from Landfill Samples
The objective of this investigation was to study the impact of temperature variations on the rate of methane generation from solid waste. The temperatures investigated ranged from 21°C...
