Keywords: Emissions, methane, landfill, waste and IPCC.


Methane gas (CH4) is one of the main Greenhouse Gases (GHG), which contributes
14.5% to global warming. The methane gas potential that can be created from final
processing site landfills in 45 big cities in Indonesia in 2010 reached 11,390 tons of
CH4/year or the equivalent of 239,199 tons of CO2/year. The decomposition process
that occurs in the waste pile will produce methane emissions and be released into
the atmosphere by 50-60%. Gunung Kupang final processing site is a final
processing site that serves the Banjarbaru City area in addition to the Banjarbakula
Regional final processing site, with waste coming in every day which continues to
increase and has the potential to generate emissions. The purpose of this research is
to analyze the characteristics in the form of waste generation and composition at the
Gunung Kupang final processing site and to analyze the estimation of methane gas
from the Gunung Kupang final processing site landfill activities using IPCC
methods. The methods used in this study are the Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC). Total greenhouse gas emissions produced in the IPCC
method from 2014-2020 were 1.49 Gg/year. In 2021-2024, it is estimated that
methane produced using the IPCC method is 0.528 Gg/year
