Landfills, wastewater treatment lagoons, and livestock waste management are operations representing sources of methane. The report begins with a brief overview of how CH4 is generated from the anaerobic decomposition of waste and then discusses generation of CH4 in detail in landfills, wastewater treatment lagoons, and livestock waste management. Current techniques for estimating CH4 emissions from waste are summarized, and sources of uncertainty are identified. (Copyright (c) Springer-Verlag 1993.)
