Available and Emerging Technologies for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Municipal Solid Waste Landfills

View/download the publication.

This document provides information on control techniques and measures that are available to mitigate GHG emissions from the municipal solid waste landfill sector at this time.

Because the primary GHG emitted by the municipal solid waste landfill industry are methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), the control technologies and measures presented in this document focus on these pollutants. While a large number of available technologies are discussed here, this paper does not necessarily represent all potentially available technologies or measures that that may be considered for any given source for the purposes of reducing its GHG emissions. For example, controls that are applied to other industrial source categories with exhaust streams similar to the municipal solid waste sector may be available through “technology transfer” or new technologies may be developed for use in this sector.
