Ceram has published a white paper that discusses the increasing use of methane derived from biodegradable waste in landfill sites and bioreactors.

‘The Monitoring and Quality Control of Waste to Energy for Landfill Gas and Biogas’ reports on the directives driving the increased use of energy derived from waste sources and the technologies used to achieve this.

The paper provides guidance on the monitoring and testing methods that should be used to provide quality control and to ensure suitability of use of the final product.

There are a number of national and international commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the use of energy from non-fossil fuel sources – and harnessing methane in the form of landfill gas and biogas is one way to achieve this.

Mr Stuart Watson, organic analysis supervisor at Ceram, commented: ‘Landfill sites and bioreactors tend to release a highly variable mixture of gases and vapours.

‘These could be damaging to equipment that uses the fuel as well as having human health implications if emissions are not filtered effectively.

‘The testing and monitoring that we describe in this white paper can make sure that this is not an issue.’
