2015 - 2025 Solid Waste and Materials Management Plan

Objective 5: Support New Waste Reduction and Recycling Technology

Description

Objective 5 in the 2015-2025 Solid Waste and Materials Management Plan describes the TDEC's goal to support new waste diversion technology. TDEC is exploring ways to develop and implement strategies to accomplish this goal.  Some efforts include converting the "composting grant" into an "organics management grant" so that anaerobic digestion, anaerobic fermentation, gasification, biodiesel production, biomass-to-energy, and pyrolysis will be eligible.  If you are interested in sharing your comments please visit the 2025 Plan Public Participation website.
