This research aimed to determine CH4 levels and its potential of usage in Klotok Landfill Kediri City. The measurement of CH4 was performed at six points, three points at Klotok I and Klotok II Landfill in each cell. CH4 was measured using portable gas detector with the MQ-04 type of gas sensor. The measurement of CH4 was performed in seven times of observation in the morning and in the evening. The average of CH4 levels at Klotok I Landfill were (1.8±0.71); (62.46±3.19); and (3.07±2.65) %Vol, respectively. The highest CH4 levels at Klotok I Landfill was in Cell 2, which was almost similar to Klotok II Landfill. The CH4 levels in each measurement points in the Klotok II Landfill were (63.21±2.61); (62.46±4.70); and (19.76±17) %Vol, respectively. The highest CH4 levels at Klotok II Landfill was in Point 1. The CH4 levels were affected by environmental condition in terms of soil temperature, soil moisture, and pH of soil, etc; the existence of methanogenic microorganisms, and the composition of waste in the landfill. A high CH4 levels at Klotok Landfill Kediri City can be utilized as an alternative fuel for renewable energy source appropriate with the concept of green technology.
