Description:

A significant trend that has surfaced over the past several years is a substantial increase in the diversion of MSW organics. Recent legislation from the recent EPA’s goal of 50% diversion of food waste to proposed legislation in the State of California to ban all organics from landfills by 2025 demonstrate the momentum behind this trend. This webinar will provide a summary on current practices and trends in managing the organic fraction of municipal solid waste. Specifically, the following questions will be explored:

How accurate are estimates of organics generations?
Do we really know how much organics there are?
How are current and proposed policies affecting organic management trends?
How are organics currently being managed and what tonnages are processed?
What kinds of technologies are being used (e.g. composting, anaerobic digestion)?
If all organics were diverted, do we have the ability to manage them via non-landfill strategies?
