Report ID: GMI1246

Summary Methodology

Global landfill gas market size is set to grow appreciably owing to stringent norms associated with greenhouse emission. Rising demand for the clean energy technologies will further enhance the industry outlook across the forecast period. In 2016, Singapore government had setup a new target towards the reduction in carbon emission by 36% by 2030 below 2005 levels.

Depleting conventional resources leading to growing energy security concern will positively steer the global landfill gas market. Effective energy utilization and integration of competent equipment will further drive the technology by 2024. In 2017, UK based Brunel University in collaboration with a waste management firm Mission Resources have announced development of a Home Energy Recovery Unit (HERU) to heat water in the country.

Rising waste disposal leading to increasing waste to energy techniques will foster the global landfill gas market share by 2024. Government favorable waste management initiatives will thrust the global industry. In 2017, the Australian government have initiated a USD 2 million program in support of waste to energy technologies across Victoria City.

Complex design of treatment facility and inconsistency of waste composition will hamper the global landfill gas market. Extensive urban population growth favoring to the domestic solid waste technology leading to low generation rates and enhanced treatment technologies.

On the basis of application, the global landfill gas market can be segmented into utility flares, pipeline-quality, process heater, leachate evaporation and electricity generation. These applications are anticipated to grow substantially complying to growing environmental concern and industrialization across the globe. In 2017, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission(FERC) has approved the settlement that provides a single natural gas quality specification for heavier hydrocarbons and ethane in the U.S.

Landfill gas market from electricity generation is set to grow appreciably pertaining to developing distributed generation technology and intensive growing demand for electricity. In 2016, the U.S. based ENER-G systems piloted an independent USD 7.58 million, 11MW landfill gas to power project in South Africa. Landfill gas market from utility flare is anticipated to grow considerably with increasing demand for reduced carbon emission technologies across the globe. The U.S. based Atlantic County Landfill Energy has established a USD 440,000 worth enclosed flare to reduce excess methane to electric plant besides the landfill in New Jersey.

Landfill gas market from pipeline-quality gas is set to grow appreciably owing to stringent government initiatives and advanced infrastructure implementations across the globe. In 2017, Wiscosin council has requested for installation, delivery and fabrication of a biogas treatment system in compliance to convert landfill gas into high-BTU biomethane in the U.S.

Leachate management in landfill gas market is anticipated to grow moderately on account of safe and clean disposal of waste water from landfills. Growing environmental concern and effective gas extraction from waste water from landfills further adhere to the technology implementation. In 2017, the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly has approved USD 400,000 towards expansion of their landfill leachate management installations.


The U.S. landfill gas market is set to grow substantially complying to government proposed high tax incentives and growing waste management demand across the forecast period. In 2016, the U.S. based Environmental Research & Education Fund (EREF) awarded USD 93,069 to three landfill gas projects complying to their Tracer Dilution Methodology for methane detection in the country.

In China landfill gas market, integrated cogeneration technology and government led directive concerning to reduced carbon emissions will foster the industry by 2024. In 2016, the country declared its thirteenth five-year plan (2016 to 2020) which proposes 3,150 large-scale methane with 172 new waste-to-energy projects incorporating an investment of about USD 7.3 billion.

Europe followed by Germany landfill gas market provides appreciable scope with rising climatic concern adhering to security of supply demand. In 2016, German Biogas Association (GBA) technology installation capping of 150MW in 2017 to 2019 has been upgraded to 220 MW per year from 2020 to 2022.

In Africa, landfill gas market is set to grow prominently due to security of supply reforms adhering to rapid growth in co-gen technology across off -grid remote areas. In 2016, an independent, 11 MW landfill gas to power project has been established in South Africa by the U.S. based ENER-G systems.

Key players in the global landfill gas market are namely, Waste Management Inc., Infinis, Veolia, A2A Energia, Aterro Recycling Pvt. Ltd., AEB Amsterdam, Shenzhen Energy, Babcock & Wilcox technology implementations. Mergers & Acquisitions and effective turnkey project implementations and are the key market player strategies. In 2017, UK based Veolia acquired Kurion, the U.S. for USD 350 million to expand its presence across nuclear waste business.
