Abstract

   Fugitive emissions of biogas in the Urban Solid Waste Treatment Plants are an important source of odors. These emissions that occur, for example, in the landfills cells, even when these are degassed with drainage wells connected for the extraction, transport and storage of the gas for its energetic use, or for torch burning, they are very difficult to detect and require processes that require a lot of time and high execution costs.

   The optical visualization of biogas using an infrared gas analyzer (Smart inspec-tion) allows obtaining excellent results by implementing leak identification and reduction programs with an unbeatable cost-effectiveness ratio.

   The gases absorb infrared radiation in different ranges, which excites the mole-cules allowing their visualization with infrared detectors. In the case of biogas, methane is the major component, and the strong absorption of radiation by methane allows easy detection by infrared cameras of this gas
