The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Municipal Solid Waste Initiative developed the Landfill Gas Project Screening Tool to assist cities in assessing the potential feasibility of a landfill gas energy (LFGE) project. It provides a preliminary estimate of how much landfill gas (LFG) a site could collect, and whether that fuel supply is likely sufficient to support a modest-sized LFGE project. LFGE project types include combusting LFG directly to produce heat (e.g., for industrial applications), using LFG to generate electricity, and – in some cases – converting LFG into a compressed natural gas (CNG) to fuel vehicles.

Get the tool from the Municipal Solid Waste Knowledge Platform.
