Policy Actions to Mitigate Methane in Latin America

Efforts to combat global climate change are fought on many fronts. Although many developed countries manage to divert a high percentage of waste away from sanitary landfills through recycling, composting, refuse-derived fuel, and waste to energy, many developing countries rely heavily upon landfill or open dump disposal because it is the only viable option. Often inadequate, these landfills emit methane gas that migrates out of the ground and into the atmosphere, significantly contributing to global warming. continue reading »
