||The paper discusses research efforts to improve methodologies for estimating landfill emissions. The paper discusses two key variables: the amount of refuse landfilled, and the CH4-generating potential of that refuse. Estimates of annual U.S. municipal solid waste production are compared, and the limitations of each method are reviewed. The implications for global data development are discussed.
