How harnessing methane from landfills could help Canada fight climate change

A team from St. Francis Xavier University is pioneering efforts to measure methane emissions from Canada’s landfills, aiming to tackle climate change more effectively. Their work highlights the importance of accurately gauging methane, a potent greenhouse gas, to refine Canada’s approach to reducing emissions in line with global commitments. Their research has revealed that emissions are slightly lower than previously thought, due to Canada’s climate, but there’s still a significant impact from long-standing landfill waste.

This initiative is a call to action for organizations like our own and individuals passionate about improving landfill management and reducing methane emissions. By showcasing the benefits of capturing and using methane, this project underlines a critical step towards sustainable waste management and a cleaner environment. It represents a united front against climate change, inviting more partners to contribute to a greener Canada.
