[BioCycle Magazine] The U.S. anaerobic digestion (AD) market represents an attractive, multibillion dollar investment opportunity. However, structural industry obstacles must be overcome before the market can realize its full potential. As a renewable energy investor with deep experience in the U.S. solar industry, ABC member Generate Capital believes there is knowledge and experience that can be transferred from the solar industry to the AD market. The landfill industry is in decline and food waste diversion regulation is on the rise. Proven AD technology already exists, with a market potential for hundreds of new biogas projects in the U.S. It is time for the AD industry to expand its role from a compliance technology for dairy manure to transforming our organic waste management system.

Welcome new ABC member, Hennepin County Environment & Energy Department!
The Environment and Energy department protects and preserves the environment to enhance the quality of life for current and future generations. The department works with cities, community groups, schools, businesses, trade groups, waste haulers, composters, and others to prevent food waste, rescue still edible food, and recycle organics. The department provides technical assistance, educational materials, training, container labels, and grants to accelerate the start-up of new organics programs, and improve existing ones, throughout the county.

CalRecycle remains confident the state's progressive recycling and waste reduction efforts will provide long-term benefits to Californians, our environment, and our economy," said Lance Klug, a public information officer for CalRecycle, via email.
