Madrid and Barcellona –Biogas emission assessment


The two Spanish landfill sites, Valdemingomez (Madrid) and El Garraf (Barcellona), together amount to a capacity of over 50 million tons.

In 2000 and 2001, these two sites were subjected to biogas production prospection analyses aimed at assessing the gas-to-energy recovery plants.

In order to increase the accuracy of the assessment, theoretical prospection developed on the BIO model forecast was verified by on-the-spot aerial (helicopter) thermography which determined the exact production of both plants.
