Does your restaurant or business generate cardboard waste that currently gets sent to the landfill? Did you know that landfills currently produce over 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions?
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) landfill gas (LFG) is a natural byproduct of the decomposition of organic material in landfills. LFG is composed of roughly 50 percent methane (the primary component of natural gas), 50 percent carbon dioxide (CO2) and a small amount of non-methane organic compounds. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas 28 to 36 times more effective than CO2 at trapping heat in the atmosphere over a 100-year period.
