New Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

April 21, 2020

The U.S. EPA Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) is pleased to inform its Partners and other interested stakeholders about a new LMOP resource related to landfill gas (LFG) collection systems. LMOP has developed two new chapters for the program’s LFG Energy Project Development Handbook (PDH): 

  • Chapter 7. Best Practices for Landfill Gas Collection System Design and Installation provides information on site-specific factors that influence the design of a gas collection system and discusses a variety of collection component options to help operators minimize surface emissions and system downtime.
  • Chapter 8. Best Practices for Landfill Gas Collection System Operation and Maintenance presents information on managing liquids in a gas collection system, wellhead monitoring and health and safety considerations to help operators achieve a safe and functional system.

These new chapters are available online individually and as part of the full PDH document. All the PDH chapters are described at
