Abstract

According to the European Landfill Directive 1999/31/EC and the related Italian Legislation \“D.Lgs. No. 36/2003”, monitoring and control procedures of landfill gas emissions, migration and external dispersions are clearly requested. A possible quantitative approach for field measurement and consequential evaluation of landfill gas emission rates (CO2, CH4) consist of the static, non-stationary accumulation chamber technique. At the Italian level, a significant and recent situation of periodical biogas emission monitoring is represented by the sanitary landfill for non-hazardous waste of the \“Fano” town district (Marche Region), whereas monitoring campaigns with the static chamber have been annually conducted during the last five years (2005-2009). This paper deals with some representative elaborations derivable from this multiyear monitoring experience. Keywords: case-study, emission, landfill gas, measurement, static chamber. 1 Introduction According to the new European waste Directive 2008/98/EC [1], waste disposal is still the conclusive option within the reorganised waste hierarchy.
