What does a landfill biogas expert or consultant do? Landfills are locations set specifically for disposal of residential, industrial, and commercial waste. Landfills are a very large source methane emissions. Biogas from landfills is also called landfill gas (LFG), since the digestion process takes place in the ground rather than in an anaerobic digester. There are thousands of landfill gas projects worldwide, most using the LFG to produce electricity.

The landfill biogas expert can perform various services such as technology selection, feasibility studies, design review, permitting assistance, cost opinions, construction oversight, commissioning reports and process optimization. A landfill biogas expert is often used as an expert witness in litigation involving landfills with related biogas operations.
