The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) is a voluntary assistance program that helps to reduce methane emissions from landfills by encouraging the recovery and beneficial use of landfill gas (LFG) as a renewable energy resource. LFG contains methane, a potent greenhouse gas that can be captured and used to fuel power plants, manufacturing facilities, vehicles, homes and more. By joining LMOP, companies, state agencies, organizations, landfills and communities connect with a vast network of industry experts and practitioners who support LFG energy project development.

SURGE OF WASTE-RELATED FATALITIES—UNACCEPTABLE
Arecent increase in fatal accidents involving garbage trucks is of great concern and is unacceptable. In March, SWANA’s safety tracking identified ten separate incidents in which someone in the United States has been killed in an accident involving a truck carrying garbage or recyclables.

SWANApalooza Recap + SWANA Membership

I started writing this month’s column on my (delayed!) flight returning from SWANApalooza in Charleston. What a terrific conference! More than 1,200 people attended the event, which brought together several important SWANA events, including the Landfill Gas and Biogas Symposium, Landfill Symposium, the Road to Zero Waste Conference and our

What Happened in Charleston Should Definitely Not Stay There

You’ve got the makings of a concoction that nourishes your need for first-rate waste management fare…and goes darn well with grits and southern fried cooking at its finest. As a Q&D assessment, I came away stuffed with a host of new ideas along with some questions about the principal subject

It Takes a Partnership

It Takes a Partnership

Approximately 130 landfill gas (LFG) energy projects were operating in 1994, a year characterized by the emergence of an innovative voluntary partnership program envisioned by the US EPA to combat climate change: the Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP). Amidst growing recognition that landfills are a major human-caused source of greenhouse

SWANA News

Landfills have been identified by regulators and policy-makers as significant sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Historically, the determination of methane emission rates has been based on assumptions regarding landfill gas (LFG) generation rates, LFG collection system efficiencies, and methane oxidation in landfill cover soils.
