What Waste Management is Doing to Tackle the Challenges Posed by Organics Waste

ABC Member, Waste Management, has had stakes in organic waste diversion for years, but those stakes are climbing as new regulations across the country are upping the ante on diverting food and yard waste from landfills. The corporation’s proprietary technology, called Centralized Organic Recycling (CORe), first launched at a wastewater treatment facility in Los Angeles. It has since taken roots in New York City, and CORe will soon be up and running in Boston.

Exeter Dairy Farm sees powerful future in food waste, cow manure
Stonyvale Farm's manure goes to ABC Member Exeter Agri-Energy's on-site power plant. That manure creates methane gas, which powers a turbine that makes enough electricity to run the farm and sell back to the grid.

Arguments over Clean Power Plan Set for Tuesday
Lawyers representing 27 states, utilities, mining firms and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will deliver oral arguments next Tuesday before a 10-member federal appeals court panel claiming the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan (CPP) represents "regulatory overreach," is an "enormous transformative expansion" of EPA authority by exceeding the powers granted by the Clean Air Act, an unprecedented invasion of state sovereignty and places undue compliance burdens on states. The CPP, announced last year, calls on states to develop schemes that reduce emissions from existing power plants - mostly coal-fired - that will collectively lower them nationally by 32 percent under 2005 levels by 2030.
