🚀 Exciting News! 🚀

I am thrilled to share that my research proposal, "Developing and Implementing Remote Sensing Methods for Detection of Biogas/Methane Leakage in Landfills," has been awarded 1.250.000 TL in funding by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Türkiye (TÜBİTAK). 🌟

This project aims to address a critical environmental issue by detecting and routinely monitoring biogas/methane leakage from landfills, which are a significant source of anthropogenic methane emissions. By doing so, we hope to not only reduce emissions but also increase energy production and mitigate odor problems associated with landfills.

I couldn't be more thankful for the opportunity to lead this research as the Principal Investigator. I want to express my sincere gratitude to the TÜBİTAK for their support and belief in the importance of our work.

None of this would be possible without an incredible team, and I'm fortunate to have two outstanding Faculty Associates, Associate Professor Levent Kuzu and Assistant Professor Ozgun Yucel, by my side. 🙌

I look forward to collaborating with them and other experts in the field as we embark on this exciting journey to make a positive impact on our environment. 🌍

Stay tuned for updates on our progress, and let's work together to create a more sustainable future! 💪
