Case study of sulphur compounds emissions characterization

Abstract : In order to manage the methane and sulphur compounds emissions of a landfill area with deposits of plasterworks, a flux measurements study was conducted with a mobile laboratory, portable analysers and different chambers. The static chamber was first used in order to locate the methane hot spots. The funnel and the Total Reduced Sulphur (TRS) analyser allow the comparison between emissions of methane and hydrogen sulphide which represent the predominant sulphur compound. In a second stage, the variability of the hydrogen sulphide emissions was monitored with two dynamic chambers and a period of several days. Hydrogen sulphide emissions by cap are much lower than those predicted by the methane flux and the concentration of hydrogen sulphide in landfill gas (LFG).
