Proceedings and Highlights

USEPA/USAID held a workshop in San Salvador, El Salvador, on March 29—30, 2007, to train potential users on the Central America Landfill Gas (LFG) Model. EPA developed the Model to help landfill owners and operators, end users of landfill gas, and other interested parties in Central America evaluate the feasibility and potential benefits of collecting and using LFG for energy recovery. The agenda of the workshop is noted below. To view presentations from the workshop, use the links to the PDF documents listed after each agenda topic. If you have difficulty accessing or obtaining the information from these PDF documents, please contact LMOP.

Both the Model and its accompanying User's Manual can be downloaded below. (Selecting this link will launch the spreadsheet. To download the data, right-click the link and save the file to your computer.)
