Methane Emissions from Disposal of Biodegradable Polyester in U.S. Landfills

June 13, 2022

 

Dr. Ketan Shah of SCS Engineers will present his paper and findings at the Air and Waste Management Association, 115th ACE-22 conference from June 27-30 in San Francisco, California. Methane generation, recovery, and emissions projections for biodegradable polyester fiber used to create clothing products are growing. This clothing will eventually be disposed of in municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills in the U.S. The scope of work described in this research project includes providing the methane estimates that discuss the data, assumptions, and calculation methods used to develop the estimates.

See the full abstract of “Methane Emissions from Disposal of Biodegradable Polyester in U.S. Landfills,” and we hope you will consider attending Dr. Shah’s presentation at ACE-22.
