States across the country are expected to pass new laws and revisions to their solid waste policies that ban commercial organics from landfills. Massachusetts was the first and will implement a statewide ban to divert certain volumes of commercial food waste from landfills beginning on July 1, 2014.

When this transformative change in solid waste management occurs across the nation, thousands of hospitals, colleges and universities, restaurants, supermarkets, government facilities, school systems, and other entities will be affected, yet the cost to comply is still unknown and the organics to energy technologies are just emerging. Facilities need to be built and funding sources need to be found.

pldw Municipal Infrastructure attorneys have scheduled a comprehensive webinar to share their knowledge and experience in this area. By attending the April 22, 2014 webinar, you will learn to identify each critical component of a successful procurement and project development process for organics to energy technologies projects to better evaluate your options. The session will also include an in-depth analysis on the benefits of alternative project delivery models, including public-private partnerships, and you will gain the knowledge you need to capture funding opportunities for technical assistance, feasibility studies and procurement and project development.
