The report presents an empirical model to estimate global methane (CH4) emissions from landfills and open dumps, based on EPA data from landfill gas (LFG) recovery projects. CH4 produced by the anaerobic decomposition of waste buried in landfills and open dumps is a significant contributor to global CH4 emissions, with estimates ranging from 10 to 70 Tg/yr. Methods of managing solid waste vary widely, ranging from open dumps and open burning to sanitary landfills with leachate collection systems and LFG control.
