Many methodologies exist to measure whole landfill methane emission as alternatives to imprecise estimation of the methane emission using existing landfill gas generation models. An overview of the different measurement methodologies is given, and suggestions to the most promising methodologies are presented. Methods based on the tracer dilution approach are most promising. However, still some developments are needed, both in respect to the technical implementation, and in respect to the protocols needed to obtain annual emission estimates based on the limited number of measurement campaigns.
