New Technique to Quantify CH4 Oxidation and Encourage Field Implementation of Biocovers"
Many studies using various types of biocover materials to attenuate CH4 emissions have been performed both at the laboratory and field scale. The results demonstrated that CH4 emissions can be effectively reduced using compost, amended sandy soils and other materials as cover materials using several mechanisms. One of the main issues delaying the field implementation of biocovers capable of reducing CH4 emissions from landfills, is the lack of a widely accepted protocol to assess the level of CH4 oxidation under field conditions.
