Landfill Gas Energy Cost Model
Evaluate the initial economic feasibility of an LFG energy project using LMOP’s LFGcost-Web model. Version 3.6 was released in September 2023.
LMOP is a voluntary program that works cooperatively with industry stakeholders and waste officials to reduce or avoid methane emissions from landfills. LMOP encourages the recovery and beneficial use of biogas generated from organic municipal solid waste. Learn more about LMOP or join the LMOP listserv.
