The first-order decay (FOD) model is widely used to estimate landfill gas generation for emissions inventories, life cycle assessments, and regulation. The FOD model has inherent uncertainty due to underlying uncertainty in model parameters and a lack of opportunities to validate it with complete field-scale landfill data sets. The objectives of this paper were to estimate methane generation, fugitive methane emissions, and aggregated collection efficiency for landfills through a mass balance… Expand
Seasonal k and Independent Carbon Dioxide Approaches For First Order Decay Landfill Gas Modelling
Canada's per capita solid waste disposal rates are among the highest in the world. Landfill gas generation requires more accurate modelling in order to properly compare future emission mitigation orExpand
Evaluation and application of site-specific data to revise the first-order decay model for estimating landfill gas generation and emissions at Danish landfills
TLDR
The comparison study of the revised Afvalzorg model outcomes and field measurements at four Danish landfills provided a guideline for revising the Pollutants Release and Transfer Registers (PRTR) model, as well as indicating noteworthy waste fractions that could emit CH4 at modern landfilling.

Estimation of Methane Emissions Released from a Municipal Solid Waste Landfill Site through a Modelling Approach : A Case Study of Akouédo Landfill , Abidjan ( Côte d ’ Ivoire )
Municipal Solid Waste landfilling is the most common waste elimination in the developing countries in general and particularly in Côte d’Ivoire. However, gaseous emissions from waste landfilledExpand
Applying methane and carbon flow balances for determination of first-order landfill gas model parameters
Landfill gas (LFG) emissions from a given amount of landfill waste depend on the carbon flows in the waste. The objective of this study was to more accurately estimate the first-order decayExpand
Optimization of first order decay gas generation model parameters for landfills located in cold semi-arid climates.
TLDR
The use of site specific data, provided enough information is available regarding waste mass and composition, can greatly help to improve the accuracy of these first order decay models. Expand
Critical review of the methane generation potential of municipal solid waste
ABSTRACT The ultimate methane generation potential (L0) of municipal solid waste (MSW) has been used in first-order decay models for the estimation of landfill gas (LFG) production for the previousExpand
Greenhouse gas reporting data improves understanding of regional climate impact on landfill methane production and collection
TLDR
The data suggest that waste is decaying faster than the model default values, which in turn suggests that a larger fraction of methane is produced during a landfill’s operating life (relative to post-closure). Expand
Methods for determining the methane generation potential and methane generation rate constant for the FOD model: a review
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review the literature on the available determining methods and the ranges for L0 and k values of both bulk MSW and individual waste components, while focusing on understanding the decomposition of waste, including the role of lignin. Expand
Use of seasonal parameters and their effects on FOD landfill gas modeling
TLDR
A simple application study was conducted using LFGcost-Web, and found the increased precision of seasonal k’s resulted in negligible differences with annual optimized k, while the default parameters overestimated the net present worth by 12–155% for three of the four common LFG energy projects.

Hybrid landfill gas emissions modeling and life cycle assessment for determining the appropriate period to install biogas system
Abstract Municipal solid waste landfills are known as one of the main greenhouse gas resources in the world. One solution to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from these resources is to installExpand

Modeling the final phase of landfill gas generation from long-term observations
TLDR
The prediction of the final phase of landfill gas generation by a fitting model provides a basis for CO2 balances in waste management and some information to which extent landfills serve as carbon sink. Expand
Determination of first-order landfill gas modeling parameters and uncertainties.
TLDR
It was found that the model is insensitive to the approach taken in quantifying the parameters and the optimum method is to determine L(0) using disposed municipal solid waste composition and laboratory component specific methane potential values. Expand
Estimation of waste component-specific landfill decay rates using laboratory-scale decomposition data.
TLDR
The effect of landfill waste diversion programs on methane production was explored to illustrate the use of component-specific decay rates. Expand
Controls on Landfill Gas Collection Efficiency: Instantaneous and Lifetime Performance
TLDR
The authors suggest that the temporally weighted gas collection efficiency, which considers total gas production and collection over the landfill life, is the appropriate way to report collection efficiency. Expand
Methane mass balance at three landfill sites: what is the efficiency of capture by gas collection systems?
TLDR
The overall methane mass balance in field cells with a variety of designs, cover materials, and gas management strategies was assessed, and defaults for percent recovery were used as the basis for guidelines by the French environment agency. Expand
The influence of atmospheric pressure on landfill methane emissions.
TLDR
The results of a multi-season study of whole landfill CH4 emissions using atmospheric tracer methods at the Nashua, New Hampshire Municipal landfill underscore the necessity of understanding a landfill's dynamic environment before assessing long-term emissions potential. Expand
Scaling methane oxidation: from laboratory incubation experiments to landfill cover field conditions.
TLDR
Temperature, water content, and water content correction factors for methane oxidation parameters were developed and the model was able to reproduce surface emissions and percent oxidation within the range measured in the field. Expand
Relating landfill gas emissions to atmospheric pressure using numerical modelling and state-space analysis
TLDR
Overall CH4 fluxes out of the soil over longer periods (years) were largest during periods with rapidly decreasing atmospheric pressures resulting in emission of large amounts of CH4 during short periods of time, however, this effect was less significant for the CO2 fluxes. Expand
Methane oxidation in Swedish landfills quantified with the stable carbon isotope technique in combination with an optical method for emitted methane.
TLDR
It is recommended that the IPCC default values for methane oxidation in managed landfills could be set to 10% for active sites and 20% for closed sites, because gas recovery was found to be highly variable at the different sites, with values from 14% up to 65% of total methane production. Expand
Landfill methane oxidation across climate types in the U.S.
TLDR
Methane oxidation in landfill covers was determined by stable isotope analyses over 37 seasonal sampling events at 20 landfills with intermediate covers over four years, and the fraction oxidized in arid sites was significantly greater than oxidation in mediterranean sites, or cool and warm continental sites.
