Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, Philippines's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 32nd in the world. Approximately 18 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—7.1 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), coal mines, and municipal solid waste.

Batay sa datos ng ulat ng EPA na Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases noong 2005, ang tinatayang buga ng anthropogenic methane (methane na nagmumula sa mga gawain ng tao) sa Pilipinas ay umantas ng ika-32 sa mundo. Humigit kumulang 18 porsiyento ng kanyang buga na anthropogenic methane—7.1 MMTCO2E—ay galing sa agrikultura (pagamit ng abono), mga minahan ng karbon, at tambakan ng basura.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency created the Philippines LFG Model to provide general estimates of LFG generation and recovery potential. The model provides recommended values for input variables based on climate data, waste characteristics, and disposal practices in Philippines, and the estimated effect of these conditions on the amounts and rates of LFG generation. The model also allows users to specify their own values for these input variables, provided the information is reliable. Other models evaluated during the model development process included the 2007 U.S. EPA Central America Landfill Gas Model Version 1, the 2009 U.S. EPA China Landfill Gas Model Version 1.1 and the 2006 IPCC Waste Model. The Philippines LFG Model incorporates components of each of these models that help it to reflect conditions at disposal sites in Philippines.

The model, which is an Excel spreadsheet, is accompanied by a User’s Manual. Both the spreadsheet and the User’s Manual can be downloaded below.

How to use this map Close detail

Methane Sites

The map shows completed and potential methane abatement, recovery, or use projects.

  • Use the check boxes to determine which sites to display on the map.
    • GMI sites are facilities at which methane abatement, recovery, and/or use projects have been identified or completed.
    • Non-GMI sites identify potential or existing projects that are not supported by the GMI.
  • Click a cluster of sites (i.e., numbered circles) to zoom to a region.
  • Click an individual site to view a summary.
  • For more site details click on the highlighted link.

Note: The placement of map icons is approximate, so the zoom-in feature is limited to avoid misrepresentations. Please contact us us if you have more accurate information about the location of a project or site.
