Landfill gas, a complex mixture of different gasses, is created by the action of microorganisms on the organic wastes within a landfill. This gas is composed of 40–60% methane and the rest is carbon dioxide. In addition, the presence of trace amounts of other hydrocarbons is found in the landfill gas. This gas mixture is primarily used as a fuel to generate heat through any type of combustion system and to produce electricity by using steam turbines or fuel cells. The efficiency of collection of gas at landfills is different for closed (those which no longer accept waste) and open (those which still accept waste) landfills.

Top Impacting Factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Depletion of conventional energy resources is anticipated to result in increased demand for landfill gas in industrial and commercial power generation. A distinguishable property of this gas mixture is that its calorific value can be escalated by lowering the carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and oxygen content. Thus, after few treatments, it can be used for industrial and commercial purposes. Landfill gas is directly usable in boilers or in infrared heaters where it can replace natural gas for providing power for energy-intensive processes, proving to be cost-effective.

However, high set up cost to maintain the optimum moisture level for the organic waste decomposition is expected to hamper the market growth. Drop in the moisture level significantly affects the biological processes that are associated with the formation of the gas mixture. On the contrary, increase in use of landfill gas and availability of solid waste in abundance are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the major players operating in this market. 

The global landfill gas market trends are as follows:

Role of landfill gas in controlling emission of greenhouse gases 

Landfill gases influence the changes in climate. Methane and carbon dioxide, the two major components of landfill gas, are both greenhouse gasses. Methane in the atmosphere is a far more potential greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Each molecule of methane is roughly 25 times more potent as a heat-trapping gas than that of a carbon dioxide molecule. Majority of this methane is emitted from the landfills as a result of bacterial decomposition of solid organic wastes. Thus, collecting and utilizing this gas mixture released from the landfills reduces the emission of methane and carbon dioxide into the environment. Governments of many countries favor the waste management initiatives, which is anticipated to boost the growth of the global landfill gas industry.
