Abstract: The majority of municipal solid waste is dumped into unregulated waste sites and into the atmosphere produced methane. Dumping of solid waste in open land and landfilling adds more to climate change, particularly global warming, as greenhouse gases (GHGs) are emitted from landfill. It is highlighted as the most commonly used and considered the most appropriate and easy mechanism, particularly for tropical countries such as India. During the estimation of the quantity of GHGs from landfill, a number of techniques have been used. The current research focuses on the amount of methane emitted by LandGEM models from the Chidambaram site. It is an automated tool for estimating total emission concentrations, methane, CO2, NMOCs and individual air pollutants from the MSW depots. The emission of methane using landGEM model for the period of 25 years from 2015 to 2040 has been calculated to add to 1504 tons.
