LMOP Reporting Questions

 How often is this data collected?

LMOP has the authority to collect this data from Partners once a year.

 How is this different from GHGRP Subpart HH reporting?

LMOP Data Collection is for a voluntary partnership program, whereas GHGRP Subpart HH is a requirement for landfills meeting the threshold under 40 CRF Part 98.  There is no duplication of data collected by LMOP and GHGRP Subpart HH because LMOP does not request the same landfill data that is collected by GHGRP.  These data elements are grayed out and not editable in the LMOP Data Reporting pages.

 What if have a new project to add?

If you have a new project that is planned, under construction, or operational, please contact LMOP at lmop@epa.gov and we will add it to your projects for review and to the LMOP Database.

 Why is the list of projects I am involved in incomplete (there are projects missing)?

LMOP assigned all projects that have an LMOP Partner involved to one LMOP Partner for reporting.  This Partner was assigned as the Primary Partner for data reporting on that project.  It may be that your Partner organization was not assigned that project for reporting.  To check on this, please contact LMOP at lmop@epa.gov

 Where is the pre-populated data coming from?

The data that is pre-populated into your project reporting pages is from the most current version of the LMOP Database.  For more information on the sources of the LMOP Database, see this page: https://www.epa.gov/lmop/landfill-gas-energy-project-data-and-landfill-technical-data

 What do you do with this data? Does it get published?

The data received via this collection process is reviewed by LMOP and data points are verified if necessary by contacting the Partner who provided the updates.  Then the data is incorporated into the LMOP Database and various Excel files of the data are published to the LMOP website.

 What do the various project statuses mean?

Candidate: Landfill is accepting waste or has been closed for five years or less, has at least one million tons of waste, and does not have an operational, under-construction, or planned project; can also be designated based on actual interest by the site.

Planned: Planning is underway on project or expansion (between Candidate and Construction)

Construction: Construction is underway on project or expansion

Operational: Project or expansion is online

Shutdown: Project or expansion has ceased operations

Future Potential: Landfill is open but does not meet the technical criteria for Candidate status yet; or landfill already has an Operational project but there is opportunity for additional energy recovery. 

Low Potential: Landfill is closed and does not meet the technical criteria for Candidate status, or landfill is not considered a Candidate due to site-specific information; or landfill has waste in place less than 500,000 tons and has been closed >15 years.  

Unknown: LMOP Database does not have sufficient data to determine potential for an LFG energy project. 

 Why does my landfill have project data when there is no LFG energy project?

LMOP creates a LFG energy project record for every landfill so that we can track any project development interest or activity over the years.
