Greenhouse gas (GHG) emission mitigation
Develop and implement novel biological methods to control emission of methane (a key GHG) from area sources and point sources, such as sanitary landfills and oil well/battery sites.
- Evapotranspirative landfill bio-cover (ET-LBC) to control methane emissions and leachate production at landfills accepting biodegradable organic waste
- High-rate methane biofiltration (HMBF) to control GHG emissions from oil-and-gas industry operations
