The potential effect of anaerobic biodegradation of MSW throughout the U.S. is considerable 140 million tons MSW/yr 5.9 billion m 3 /yr methane 15 billion kWh/yr Electricity consumption of 6.2 million US citizens Save 130 million metric tons of eCO 2 Carbon tax credits of $40 to $60/MT CO 2 e
Carbon taxes would result in landfill tipping fees similar to the EU carbon tax of $15 to $50 / MT CO 2 e methane + CO 2 50 years : AD saves 6 billion MT CO 2 e and 4 trillion kWh
