Biogas results from the metabolic activity of microorganisms on organic matter. It is created in the biological processes in sewage treatment plants, waste landfills, and livestock manure management systems. Landfill gas is a type of biogas that originates from the decomposition of organic waste in a landfill. LFG is a natural byproduct of the decomposition of organic material in landfills and is composed of roughly 50% methane (the primary component of natural gas), 50% carbon dioxide (CO2), and a small amount of non-methane organic compounds. Many facilities that produce biogas will capture it, burning the methane for heat or electricity generation. This electricity is considered renewable electricity and, in many states, contributes to meeting state renewable portfolio standards (RPS). This electricity may replace electricity generation from fossil fuels and can result in a net reduction in CO2 emissions.
