Sending organic waste to landfill generates methane because the decomposition process is happening in lack of oxygen (O2). Methane is a green house gas twenty-one times more powerfull than carbone dioxide (CO2). Since methane is mainly produced over the first 2 to 3 years following the arrival of the material, even a landfill equiped with biogas collection and control systems can’t protect the atmosphere against the methane since the cells can take up to 2 years before being sealed.
Our team is capable of providing you with a green house gas reduction compilation regarding your organic waste diversion projects. It is therefore possible to generate carbon credits that are, when gathered in sufficien quantity, tradable in the voluntary market.
