Landfill Gas Market Size Worth $ 3.55 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 8.0%

The global landfill gas market size is expected to reach USD 3.55 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Landfill Gas Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Technology (Combustion Engine, Turbines, and Others); By Type (Thermal Technologies, Biochemical Reactions); By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

As the world continues to focus on reducing carbon emissions and transitioning to renewable energy sources, there is an emerging demand for landfill gas as a clean and renewable energy source along with the rising penetration for installing gas collection systems and adoption of several new solutions that are being introduced by key players, are driving the demand and growth of the market. For instance, in May 2023, Vespene Energy & Viridi Energy, introduced their first joint pilot site with municipal landfill in Marathon County, which will reduce the GHG emissions, while generating the revenue to subsidize Viridi’s investment towards developing the RNG facility at the land-fill.

Furthermore, landfills usually generate large amounts of waste and the collection and processing of landfill gas can help to manage this waste more effectively and efficiently, that could also help to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and promote more sustainable waste management practices, is likely to create significant opportunities for the market.
