Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

Quick Reference Sheet for Regulations Affecting Landfills and Projects

This reference sheet maintained by LMOP identifies several EPA rules that may affect landfills or landfill gas (LFG) energy projects. It includes brief summaries of recently published and longer established rules, along with web addresses for readers interested in obtaining more detailed information. EPA's Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) developed most of these regulations and is the best source of information on those topics.
