Park Chan Jin

Abstract—The characteristics of gas emissions in landfill sites in recent years were investigated in Incheon area. The mechanism of landfill gas generation was considered to explain the tendency of gas components, and especially methane and carbon dioxide gas were analyzed through several methods of greenhouse gas calculation. From the study the optimal management methods of landfill site were considered and control of odorous components investigated.
