The federal Leading Infrastructure For Tomorrow’s America (LIFT America) Act, introduced March 11, calls for a wide array of infrastructure improvement proposals, including renewable energy projects that could indirectly help boost the biogas sector, according to industry experts.

The bill names landfill gas, biomass and municipal solid waste under the definition of “renewable energy resources,” meaning technologies such as combustion and anaerobic digestion would be included as renewables in the clean energy portion of the bill, according to the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA).

The bill joins several other recent or soon to be reintroduced federal bills with landfill gas implications, including the GREEN Act, Clean Energy for America Act and the CLEAN Future Act.
