Technical guidance for the quantification of specified gas emissions from landfills (version 1.2)

Description

Alberta is the only province in Canada that regulates landfills based on the quantity of greenhouse gas emitted. This guidance document was produced by the Alberta Landfill Gas Working Group to assist landfills to quantify landfill gas emissions by way of modelling, and to fulfill the requirements of the Specified Gas Reporting Regulation and Specified Gas Emitters Regulation. Another key objective of the guidance document was to standardize modeling parameters while taking into account site-specific conditions for the province of Alberta. This guidance document will be recognized by Alberta as the standardized method for landfill specified gas quantification until such time when standardized field quantification methods are approved in the future.
