The U.S. EPA Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) is pleased to announce new data on landfills and landfill gas (LFG) energy projects are now available on the LMOP website. With this update, data files for download and the LMOP National Map have been updated with information from the LMOP Database, current as of September 2018. In this data update, we have changed the terminology used for projects that upgrade LFG into renewable natural gas (RNG). Previously these were categorized as High-Btu projects. Now, you can sort the data by RNG project type, including vehicle fuel or electricity generation, and by RNG delivery method, such as local use or pipeline injection. We hope you find these new classifications helpful.
Starting today, October 1st, LMOP will begin to collect data from Partners involved with LFG energy projects and landfills via the new LMOP module in e-GGRT. This change will streamline and improve the efficiency of collecting data. The e-GGRT module will be open for six weeks. Applicable Partners have been notified about this transition over the last several months. Information about this change is available on the Resources for Partners webpage. If you are unsure about your participation in e-GGRT reporting or have any other questions, please contact LMOP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
