The Hall of Flame originated as a way to formally acknowledge and recognize those who have made a significant contribution to the landfill gas industry. Less prestigious than the DIAA, induction into the Hall of Flame is not as rigorous. In place of the tangible award and formal induction that accompany the DIAA, induction into the Hall of Flame is done through a formal announcement of a selected group of inductees and includes providing a signed certificate of achievement for each inductee.
In 2014, the Landfill Gas and Biogas Technical Division decided to induct new members every three years.
