The problems caused by the formation of biogas in waste tips and the possibility of extracting and using this gas are increasingly important. This major study deals with the environmental impact, the monitoring of landfill gas emissions, the process of gas generation, and its technological control and exploitation for energy purposes. Policies and legal aspects in the European Community and worldwide are discussed. The status of landfill gas exploitation, its economics and potential future are also reviewed.
