Research and Markets: Analyzing the Landfill Gas Industry - 2012 Report


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Analyzing the Landfill Gas Industry" report to their offering.

With the increasing global focus of energy conservation and stress on clean generation, Landfill Gas has emerged as a source which is available backdoor, is proven to be economical in cost perspective and is a growing energy resource in the modern world. The mounting advent of mega cities with their generation of mega tones of waste materials coupled with their growing energy consumption needs, has forced civilization to take a deeper look at understanding energy recycling in every from as available at many sources like a sum total zero equation.

Realizing the potential of this, as of January 2005 there were 375 LFG energy (LFGE) projects in the United States, generating clean electricity or providing a direct-use energy source for boilers, furnaces, and other applications. Approximately 100 direct-use LFGE projects in operation burned over 70 billion cubic feet (bcf) of LFGE in 2004. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP), there are still over 600 landfills that are viable candidates for project development, with a potential gas flow capacity of over 280 bcf per year.

Aruvian's R'search's report Analyzing the Landfill Gas Industry pertains to the basics of understanding the composition, natural production and transportation of Landfill Gas in the normal economic model. The report analyzes the limitations to the production of LFG and the best periods to capitalize on the generation of the gas. Certain hazards posed by this gas which warrant safe usage practices along with the procedures to assess the potential biohazard any landfill site presents before LFG can be harvested from it.

Any energy analysis is not complete without understanding the environmental impact of that energy source and the technologies deployed for the effective treatment of this energy resource in order to make it safe, clean and usable. The report also analyzes the control measures used in order to utilize LFG as an effective energy tool after the recovery and storage of LFG leading to energy generation. The report also analyzes certain case studies of such implementation of LFG processes.
