Sniffer Featured in White Paper by Environmental Defense Fund

Updated: May 31

May 30, 2024 (Ann Arbor, MI) Sniffer was featured in an article and white paper released by the Environmental Defense Fund titled "Recommendations and Considerations for the Incorporation of Advanced Methane Detection Technologies at Municipal Solid Waste Landfills."

Highlights from the article can be read below, and the full article and white paper can be read here.


EPA is required, under the Clean Air Act, to revisit its landfill rules this August. EPA last updated our landfill standards in 2016. However, since that time, new studies have shown even more significant pollution from landfills, and new technologies and mitigation practices have developed that can dramatically reduce that pollution.

A new white paper just released by EDF provides further details on the capabilities of new technologies – including satellites, remote sensing technologies, and drones – and describes advances at the state level, including in landfill standards adopted by Maryland, Oregon, California, and Washington.

EDF respectfully urges EPA to include these new technologies in updated landfill standards, and to move forward swiftly with protective standards that substantially reduce the climate pollution and health-harming pollution that endangers communities across the country.

Additional information can be found in the original article and white paper by Environmental Defense Fund.
