        EPA Landfill  Methane Outreach Program
                  The EPA Landfill Methane Outreach Program, a key
                  component of the United State's  Climate  Change
                  Action Plan> encourages the use of landfill gas (LFG)
                  as an  energy  resource.   EPA assists utilities,
municipal and private landfill owners and operators, tribes, and state
agencies in  reducing methane emissions  from landfills through the
development of profitable landfill energy recovery projects. Methane
captured from landfills can be transformed into a cost-effective fuel source
for electricity, heat, boiler and vehicular fuel, or sale to a pipeline. EPA
estimates there are approximately 200 landfill methane recovery projects
in the U.S. and that up to 750 landfills could install economically viable
landfill energy projects.

The  Landfill  Methane Outreach  Program  includes  five  important
components:   the  State Ally,  Energy Ally, Industry Ally, Community
Partner, and Endorser programs. EPA establishes separate alliances with
state agencies, energy providers (including investor-owned, municipal and
other public power utilities and cooperatives), key trade and public sector
associations, members of the landfill gas development industry (including
developers,  engineers,  equipment vendors, and others) and  local
communities, municipalities and  landfill  owner/operators through a
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).   By signing  the MOU, each
Ally/Partner acknowledges a shared commitment to the promotion of
landfill gas-to-energy recovery at solid waste landfills, recognizes that the
widespread use of landfill gas will reduce emissions of methane and other
gases, and commits to undertake activities to enhance development of this
resource. In return, EPA agrees to provide landfill gas-to-energy project
assistance and public recognition of the Allies' and Partners' participation
in the program.

                   Introduction

                   Since  1994  the U.S.  EPA's  Landfill  Methane
                   Outreach Program (LMOP) has participated in an
                   ongoing effort to gather information on Municipal
                   Solid Waste landfills (MSW).  A key component of
                   the LMOP is to provide MSW  landfill owners and
                   operators,  project developers,  utilities, and other
                   potential project  participants with  information on
                   MSW  landfills  that  may  offer  attractive  energy
                   development opportunities. This document presents
                   state specific landfill information, hereinafter referred
                   to as the landfill profiles. These profiles are useful to
                   evaluate the potential for developing landfill gas-to-
                   energy projects  (LFGTE).   EPA  assembled  this
                   information from state and local sources as  well as
                   various national solid waste publications,  landfill
                   owners and operators, and project developers.

                   The  EPA  has  prepared a  separate document to
                   describe the methodology used to develop  the state-
                   specific landfill profiles and estimate the benefits of
                   using LFGTE as an energy source.  The document,
                   Landfill  Gas-to-Energy  Project  Opportunities,
                   Background  Information  on  Landfill  Profiles,
                   contains background information on gas collection
                   and use, describes the data fields according to the five
                   sections listed on the  landfill profiles, and where
                   applicable, illustrates calculations and default values
                   used to derive estimates. EPA strongly recommends
                   that  users  read  the  document  prior to using the
                   landfill profiles.  Users can obtain the document by
                   calling the LMOP hotline at 1-888-STAR-YES.

Landfill Classification

To facilitate the use of available landfill information,
EPA has categorized the landfills into five categories:
Current Project,' Candidate Project, Shutdown, Other,
and Unknown waste-in-place (WIP). These categories
are based  on  the status of the landfill's  LFGTE
project(s) and WIP.  The generation of methane is a
function of many factors, the most critical being the
amount of waste-in-place and the number of years the
waste  has  been in  the landfill.   Peak methane
generation  occurs soon after closure;  therefore, the
longer the landfill has been closed, the less attractive it
becomes for methane recovery.  Based on the general
timing of peak methane generation, EPA assumes that
landfills that ceased accepting waste prior to 1993 have
a low probability of generating enough methane to
make a gas recovery project economical. Consequently,
landfills need to be operating in  1993 to be considered
as having a Candidate Project.
               Landfill Categorizes
  Current Project:
  •  Landfill with operational LFGTE project or landfill with
    LFGTE project under construction.
  Candidate Project:
  •  Landfill with a  potential or planned LFGTE utilization
    project; or
  •  Landfill is currently operating or closed after 1993; and has
    more than 1,000,000 tons of municipal solid waste-in-
    place.2
  Shutdown:
  •  Landfill with shutdown LFGTE project.
  Other:
  •  Landfill  has less than 1,000,000 tons of municipal solid
    waste-in-place with no current or planned LFGTE project.
  Unknown WIP:
  •  Landfill with insufficient data to determine  the waste-in-
    place.
State Summary
State-specific   landfill   profile   information  is
summarized in three exhibits.  Exhibit 1 presents a
summary of  the state-specific potential  for  LFG
utilization energy by landfill category.  Exhibit 2
summarizes the emissions  avoided by fossil fuel
displacement for electricity generation and direct use
projects.  Exhibit 3 presents an index  of the state-
specific  MSW  landfills, referenced  by category,
landfill name and general characteristics.
                   1  Current projects illustrate the wide range of successful project development options.

                   2  By modeling the relationship between WIP and methane generation, a cut-off of 1,000,000 tons of WIP was
                   established; landfills having at least 1,000,000 tons of WIP are considered candidate landfills.
