Effective Landfill Gas management Strategies for Methane Control and Reuse Technology
US-China Ecopartnership, methane, methane emission modeling, impurities, removal, clean energy production
In keeping with the Energy and Environment theme of the EcoPartnership program, the Stony Brook-Tongji collaboration is addressing greenhouse gas emissions from landfills, one of the most critical issues of our time. Tongji is developing a model that can significantly improve the accuracy of emissions estimates, while Stony Brook is perfecting an innovative technology to economically removal impurities and produce a clean fuel for transportation, heating, or electricity generation. The environmental impact of the process being developed under this collaboration versus releasing fugitive gases is noted. By the culmination of this partnership, both sides have developed economical pathways to effectively utilize fugitive gases and commercialized technologies for transportation use and power generation for offering in both countries.
