No. The bokashi composting method produces no gases at all. You will notice that during the fermentation process the lid does not bulge or swell.

what stops the bokashi method from creating methane gas as an anaerobic landfill does?

Nick Kiss answered 1 week ago

Methane is produced when organic matter rots in an anaerobic environment.  Just like garbage in the landfill. With Bokashi composting, while it is indeed anaerobic, we are fermenting and not rotting. Fermenting does not create methane.
