Voluntary Data Collection from LMOP Partners

Electronic Greenhouse Gas Reporting ToolLMOP completed the first year of voluntary data collection from LMOP Partners using the e-GGRT system in December 2018. Thank you to all LMOP Partners who participated. 

LMOP voluntary data collection will occur annually through e-GGRT. In 2019, LMOP plans to open the LMOP module for reporting in October. LMOP will contact all applicable Partners in the preceding months with reminders and information about reporting. 

The following resources are available on LMOP’s voluntary data collection:

Information about Electronic Reporting

As part of joining LMOP, select Partners agree to annually provide LMOP with information about landfill gas energy projects with which the Partner is involved. LMOP has an approved Information Collection Request under which it requests information from its Partners. All Partners are encouraged to respond to our request and report data to LMOP.

LMOP uses the information collected from Partners to populate its Landfill and LFG Energy Project Database (LMOP Database). By responding to the ICR request, Partners are helping to improve the quality and completeness of LMOP’s data, a key resource for the U.S. LFG industry and one of the inputs for the U.S. GHG Inventory. LMOP publishes information about LFG energy projects on its website to demonstrate the good work to reduce methane emissions and generate renewable energy.

It is anticipated that using e-GGRT for data collection will decrease the reporting burden for LMOP Partners by improving efficiency and the rate of response. For those landfills that report to both LMOP and subpart HH, LMOP would continue to implement procedures to avoid any duplication of reported data.
