Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dpqm7q/analyzing_the) 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.
