Estimation of Methane Emission from Kossihouen Sanitary Landfill and Its Electricity Generation Potential (Côte d’Ivoire)

Abstract : In order to solve the problem of the management of municipal solid waste in Abidjan (Côte d'Ivoire), a sanitary landfill has been designed in Kossihouen. Despite the adverse greenhouse effects of the methane, this gas has a potential of electrical energy. The estimation of methane emissions from the waste can be an economic and useful way for more accurate control and management of waste disposal in Kossihouen. Therefore, conducting this study is essential. Methane emissions were estimated based on the methane generation constant K and the methane generation potential L 0 using LandGEM 3.02. The results show that the quantity of methane emissions was 7.97E+07 m 3 /year. Based on this result, the methane content can generate 10% of total electricity consumed in Abidjan in 2026. This paper could serve as a source of scientific information for decision making on environmental sustainability in waste-to-energy projects in Côte d'Ivoire.
