+ EPA programs Landfill methane outreach program http://www.epa.gov/lmop/http://www.epa.gov/lmop/ The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP) is a voluntary assistance program that helps to reduce methane emissions from landfills by encouraging the recovery and beneficial use of landfill gas (LFG) as an energy resource. LFG contains methane, a potent greenhouse gas that can be captured and used to fuel power plants, manufacturing facilities, vehicles, homes, and more. By joining LMOP, companies, state agencies, organizations, landfills, and communities gain access to a vast network of industry experts and practitioners, as well as to various technical and marketing resources that can help with LFG energy project development.
+ Report elements Short analysis of competitive processes Plant site: Fayette County Material & energy balances May need some optimization, focused on available power and link to natural gas lines Product or process – will we run a process, deliver a product,…?
