Waste Management

Landfills and dump sites emit large quantities of methane as household waste decomposes over time. GHGSat data is ideally suited to quantify the emissions from these large sites in a single snapshot and do it frequently, compared to land-based methods which take days or weeks for a single measurement. The actionable information provided by our satellite can help identify areas which emit more methane and assist in the most effective placement of gas collection systems.
