Helsatech inc has designed a special waste cover system for landfill operations (compost windrows), which is supposed to reduce odor and gas load according to manufacturer information. Lab tests (gas and olfactory tests) have been run to research the cover system's quality. To determine its performance characteristics the membrane has been clamped into compost boxes to take measurements pre and past the cover system.
