Rethinking how organic wastes are managed in the United States can achieve significant environmental, public health and economic benefits. When manure, organic materials and food wastes degrade naturally, they release methane - a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) that is 28 to 36 times more effective than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere over a 100-year period. However, management of organic wastes through anaerobic digestion offers a solution that will lower emissions of methane and non-methane organic compounds (NMOCs), reduce odors, minimize leachate generation and conserve landfill space.
Learn what EPA's Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP), AgSTAR and Sustainable Materials Management programs are doing to help reduce methane emissions from landfills, manure and organic wastes. And hear from American Biogas Council’s 2022 Biogas Industry Award Finalists and Recipients about their innovative projects and lessons learned along the way to developing successful projects and technologies.
