|Abstract: ||The Environment Agency (the Agency) is responsible for the regulation of
landfill sites in England and Wales. Since its formation, the Agency’s
regulatory strategy for landfill gas has been to require operators to
demonstrate best practice. However, this approach does not allow environmental
outcomes from site-specific landfill gas management to be easily illustrated or
quantified. Greater clarity is now given to these environmental outcomes by
augmenting best practice regulation of landfill gas with emissions-based
regulation. This will require a “step change” in the management of landfill gas.
However, it will enable the operator and regulator alike to respond to public
concerns regarding landfill gas, including increasingly complicated health-
