Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to estimate the amount of landfill gas (LFG) generation from Jebel Chakir landfill which is the first largest landfill in Tunisia. To achieve that LandGEM model was used in predicting the amount of LFG generation. It was found that the LFG generation reaches its peak value of 2.61×107 m3/year by the year 2011, one year after the landfill closure. Furthermore, the power that can be obtained from the landfill in case of LFG recovery was estimated to be 35.5 GWh, providing a significant power generation opportunity at Jebel Chakir landfill. Utilizing the biogas will not only generate a green energy, but also will create a source of revenue through selling the certified emission reduction regulated by Clean Development Mechanism of Kyoto protocol.
