Read the latest GGS editorial by Simon Talbot, Developing former landfill. The article focuses on the challenges in quantifying the ground-gas risk posed by former landfill sites. The use of continuous monitoring techniques can better quantify the real ground-gas risks from former landfill, allowing development to go ahead without the need for over-conservative and expensive protection measures. The paper also stresses the need for quality installation of ground-gas membranes.
