Renewed Focus On Landfill Calculations As Waste Industry Faces Pressure To Reduce Emissions, Waste Dive, March 2021

It also lets landfill operators credit methane capture technologies for being better at their job than other optional calculators do. This method more accurately reflects specific site conditions and today’s technology while allowing operations to show improvement.
