Landfill Methane Outreach Program
Global Methane Initiative is an international Partnership working to reduce global methane emissions from landfills, underground coal mines, natural gas and oil systems, and animal waste management while creating clean, sustainable energy.
International Landfill Inventory and Economic Data
U.S. EPA data on international greenhouse gas emissions may be obtained from the Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions Data website.
LMOP's efforts to promote landfill gas (LFG) recovery and use extends beyond U.S. borders. Internationally, LMOP works with organizations to promote LFG recovery and use by offering a variety of outreach, education and technical assistance services to countries interested in LFG energy project development. If you are interested in learning more about our international efforts and are currently developing, or considering developing, LFG energy projects outside of the United States, please visit the Global Methane Initiative website .
Landfill Gas Modeling Tools
LMOP has developed several country-specific LFG generation models to help landfill owners and operators and other interested parties evaluate the feasibility and potential benefits of collecting and using LFG for energy recovery.
