If you enter a closure year, but still select Yes for the option to have the model calculate closure year, then the model will disregard the closure year you entered and automatically calculate closure year for you. The focus of the Laboratory's research program is on methods and their cost-effectiveness for prevention and control of pollution to air, land, water, and subsurface resources; protection of water quality in public water systems; remediation of contaminated sites, sediments and ground water; prevention and control of indoor air pollution; and restoration of ecosystems. Municipal Solid Waste Landfills, final rule. To change the screen resolution, you can open the Control Panel from the Start menu, open the Display folder, select the Settings tab at the top of the window, and adjust the Screen resolution or Screen area option depending on your version of Windows accordingly. However, this is not recommended for sites that are typical of MSW landfills, which contain a range of waste that may or may not be degradable.

Acceptance Rate Input Options.
You can now create graphs from these emission values by selecting Chart A User-specified value entry box will appear to the right of that parameter landgfm you can enter the site-specific value. It is important to note that when the Methane Content is assumed to be 50 percent by volume defaultthen methane and landgfm dioxide emission rates are identical on a volume basis e. The higher the cellulose content of the waste, the higher the value of L0. Emissions of air pollutants are based on concentrations of air pollutants in the landfill gas.
What responsibilities do I have when using this text? NRMRL's research provides solutions to environmental problems by: Showing of 56 pages in this text.
Under a mandate of national lansgem laws, the Agency strives to formulate and implement actions leading to a compatible balance between human activities and the landtem of natural systems to support and nurture life.
To estimate actual emissions in the absence of site-specific data, a second set of default values the inventory defaults is provided in the model.

Contact Us to ask a question, provide feedback, or report a problem. Refinery wastewater emissions tool spreadsheet Dec Using LandGEM LandGEM is flexible enough to allow the user to input either site-specific data if available or default parameters provided by the model.
To adjust the number formats of the values contained in the RESULTS worksheet, landge will need to copy and paste the emission estimates into a new Landgen Excel file by following the instructions below: The values of theoretical and obtainable L0 range from 6.
A proposed May The default unit of measure for Waste Design Capacity is megagrams. The first-order decomposition rate equation used by LandGEM to determine emissions may not be valid outside of this range. If the revised NMOC concentrations result in NMOC emissions that still exceed the cutoff value, the landfill can choose to install emission landgdm or landem to the third tier of the applicability determination, which is to perform another test to obtain a site-specific lvalue the landgwm generation rate constant.
You are not required to enter information into the Landfill Name or Identifier entry box. Waste Acceptance Rate Inputs. Appropriately, this default set results in conservative high emission projections. A smaller acceptance rate may be used the last year to achieve the exact design capacity.

These minor differences are due to rounding of the concentration values to more accurately reflect their relative uncertainty.
Landfill Closure Year The year in which the landfill ceases, or is expected to cease, accepting waste. You may select each of the model parameters from the drop-down menu.
The EPA has determined that emissions from MSW landfills cause, or contribute significantly to, air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Follow the links below landem find similar items on the Digital Library. L0 depends on the amount of cellulose in the waste.
The software provides a relatively simple approach to estimating landfill gas emissions. However, this is not recommended for sites that are typical of MSW landfills, which contain a range of waste that may or may not be degradable.
The NMOC Concentration for the inventory default is ppmv where co-disposal of hazardous waste has either not occurred or is unknown and 2, ppmv where co-disposal of hazardous waste has occurred. Editing and formatting of lzndgem graphs are protected from user modification. Because some air pollutant concentrations in the landfill gas are slightly higher for landfills that have been used for disposal of hazardous waste than for those that have not, there is a choice in the model between "Co-disposal," i.
