LMOP Webinar on Renewable Natural Gas from LFG and Sustainability at L’OréalExit

December 12, 2018 | 1pm | Eastern Standard Time

In 2018, L’Oréal USA entered an agreement to purchase renewable natural gas (RNG) to be produced in a new processing facility at a large Kentucky landfill. This project is part of the company’s plan to achieve carbon neutrality in 2019 for all 19 of its U.S. manufacturing and distribution facilities.

During this webinar, speakers will provide information about projects that produce RNG from landfill gas (LFG). Mrs. Cappel will share information about the current status of LFG-to-RNG projects in the United States as well as program tools and other resources. Mr. Harf will present information about L’Oréal’s purchase of RNG and its role in achieving L’Oréal’s corporate sustainability goals.


Kirsten Cappel, Program Manager, U.S. EPA LMOP. Mrs. Cappel’s responsibilities are to coordinate and manage LMOP’s domestic activities. In this capacity, she provides technical assistance on LFG energy and creates alliances between LMOP and states, utilities, landfill owners and operators, communities and the LFG industry. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Irvine and a Master of Environmental Management in Resource Economics and Policy from Duke University.

Jay Harf, VP Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability, L’Oréal USA. Mr. Harf’s responsibilities include the leadership, accountability and strategic direction of all safety, health, environmental and sustainability systems and performance for the L’Oréal Americas group.
