Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

LMOP Data and Partners

LMOP provides technical data for landfill gas (LFG) energy projects and landfills to a wide range of organizations and individuals who request this type of information. LMOP joins in partnership with many different types of organizations and provides information via listserv to all interested stakeholders.

  • LMOP Database - Find and use spreadsheets of key landfill and LFG energy project data at the national or state level, read about the LMOP database and view data charts and project status definitions.
  • Project Profiles - Read profiles of historical or recent LFG energy projects with information such as location, technology type and energy end user.
  • Connect with LMOP Partners - Review the existing LMOP partnership network – for example, search for an equipment supplier or service provider, see which utilities are buying electricity from LFG or check out which communities across the country are turning their LFG into an asset.
  • Become a Partner - Partnership with LMOP benefits the Partner as well as the Program. A variety of organizations involved in the U.S. LFG industry have joined in partnership with LMOP in five categories: Industry, Energy, Community, State and Endorser. 
  • Join the Listserv - LMOP periodically notifies interested stakeholders about landfill-related information via listserv.
