Landfill Methane Outreach Program

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.
