7 Mile Landfill Operational Biocover FCM Research Project Report

7 Mile Landfill Operational Biocover FCM Research Project Report

The 7 Mile Landfill Operational Biocover FCM Research Project report is now available for review by clicking here. With the assistance of a grant from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), the RDMW commissioned leading landfill consultants, Sperling Hanson Associates, to complete a two year study of the effectiveness of the biocover system for reducing methane emissions from the landfill. They concluded that "operational biocover systems are a technically sound, economically wise and environmentally sustainable approach" to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
