Increasing rates of waste generation as a result of population growth, along with the discovery that methane is more potent of an air pollutant than originally thought, led to the recent reevaluation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Clean Air Act (CAA) rules for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfills.
On July 15, 2016, the EPA announced final updates to its New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) to reduce emissions of methane-rich landfill gas from new MSW landfills. In a separate action, EPA also issued guidelines for reducing emissions from existing MSW landfills.
