This workshop will discuss how landfill organics diversion regs/programs can lead to a push for more co-digestion at WWTPs and greater resource recovery. The workshop will cover status of organic diversion regulations in member states, co-digestion and biogas utilization program planning, greenhouse gas implications, and case studies for planning/executing co-digestion and biogas utilization projects. The target audience for this workshop will generally be utility managers and operations supervisors.

Intended Agenda Includes:

  1. Review of regulations for landfill organics diversion programs
  2. Planning for co-digestion/renewable energy products
  3. Greenhouse gas implications
  4. Case study
  5. Facilitated discussion with attendees regarding perceptions, barriers, and opportunities around organics diversion, co-digestion, and resource recovery projects/programs
