The present dissertation focuses on the production and subsequent course of biogas of the Amari landfill, exploring the existing potential for its energy valorization, through the assessment of present and future potential, using a model (LandGEM).As it turns out, the basic sizes of this landfill (eg available methane for valorization, waste quantities, area, etc.) are significantly lower than the minimum required, based on literature and experience, so that energy valorization of biogas produced is considered potentially economically viable and sustainable.However, the collection and treatment of biogas of the Amari landfill in a gas flare is an indisputable necessity, imposed both by the current legislation and by the past (but also the future) of the landfill itself.
