ABSTRACT
/Full article available only in Bulgarian language/

The quantity and the content of the landfill gas, emitted/extracted from landfill for non-hazardous waste “Suhodol” have been studied. Modeling calculations have been executed and forecast data for the quantity of the emitted and utilized landfill gas for the period till 2040 have been done. Methods for the treatment of the landfill gas, as it consists of methane - a powerful greenhouse gas, have been presented. The applicability of the presented different methods for Landfill “Suhodol” has been assessed. Assessment of the reduction of the greenhouse gases emissions after the treatment of the landfill gas via its utilization as primary energy source for the production of electricity and heat (cogeneration), has been conducted. This assessment has been done using equivalent carbon dioxide units, according to the Kyoto Protocol. An assessment of the reduction of the greenhouse emissions in other type of electricity production has been done.
