Landfill Gas Emissions Model (LandGEM) estimates air pollutant emissions from municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. The model can be used to estimate emission rates for methane, carbon dioxide, nonmethane organic compounds, and individual air pollutants from landfills. It can also be used by landfill owners and operators to determine if a landfill is subject to the control requirements of the federal New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) for new MSW landfills or the emission guidelines for existing MSW landfills. The model is based on a first order decay equation and can be run using site-specific data are available, using default values: one set based on the requirements of the NSPS and emission guidelines, and the other based on emission factors in EPA's Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors, AP-42.
