Utilizing Methane Generated in Anaerobic Leachate Treatment as Renewable Energy

Hamidreza Kamalan
Abstract—Methane is a main source of energy. On the other hand, it is a major greenhouse gas. This study aims to investigate generation of methane as energy source from municipal solid waste leachate anaerobic treatment through an up flow anaerobic sludge blanket system. Results show Chemical Oxygen Demand removal has a direct relation with methane generation. It is notable that the about two third of produced biogas consists of methane. On this basis numerical models have been developed to predict methane emission based on time.

Index Terms—Energy element, methane, leachate, municipal solid waste.
