Using innovative clean technologies can help communities meet their local waste diversion objectives and regulations while achieving the federal advanced biofuels mandates. While reducing MSW destined to landfill and incineration, these technologies offset dependence on fossil fuels in the transportation sector, help meet the federal mandate for cellulosic biofuels, and create high-quality jobs. This presentation will cover the case of our world’s first full-scale waste-to-biofuels production facility.
