Subject: Methane release from landfills

Dear List Members -

Does anyone have any information on the release into the atmosphere of
methane gas from landfills with active gas extraction systems?

According to one of my colleagues here, a landfill with an active gas
extraction system will have between about 60-80% of the methane
produced extracted by the gas recovery system. However, for the 20-40%
of the gas that does not go through the gas extraction system, not all
is released to the atmosphere because some is treated by
micro-organisms in the soil and thus does not escape into the air.

Does anyone have information on this, either hard data or any

Thanks much; I apologize for cross listings.
