The Environmental Protection Agency and the International Solid Waste Association reached an agreement June 3 to solidify an informal partnership to reduce methane emissions from landfills. The EPA and ISWA will organize a biennial conference and an annual workshop on climate change and waste issues, mitigation of emissions, and energy recovery from the waste sector. Additionally, the two parties will collaborate on training in Global Methane Initiative member countries and international best practices for capturing landfill gas.
