    1. John Fischer, MassDEPMassRecycle Conference March 27, 2012
    2. Organics Diversion Goals Solid Waste Master Plan and Clean Energy Results Program Share goal to divert additional 350,000 tons per year organics by 2020 Additional CERP goals  Ensure that at least three AD/CHP projects are operating by 2014  Increase AD capacity to 50 megawatts by 2020
    3. Organics Diversion & SWMP Part of goal to reduce overall disposal by 2 million tons per year by 2020 Baseline estimated organics disposal – more than 1 million tons per year – about 20 % of MSW Compostable paper – about 6% additional – about 300,000 tons Additional 350K tons/year by 2020 requires about 250,000-300,000 tons/year of additional capacity (some existing available capacity)
    4. Action Plan: Organics in SolidWaste CERP goal for AD may be met through multiple feedstocks – food waste, sewage sludge, agricultural materials MassDEP action plan focused on goal of diverting additional 350,000 TPY of food waste from solid waste Process  Solid Waste Master Plan workgroups  Organics Task Force/Workgroup  Organics Subcommittee meetings
    5. Organics Action Plan/Study 4 inter-related sections  Data Analysis  Collection Infrastructure  Processing Capacity/Market Development  Regulatory Reform/Waste Ban
    6. Data Analysis Updated food waste generator database Analysis of waste characterization data for organics Survey key food waste generator sectors  State facilities, supermarkets ongoing, others to come Baseline and evaluation protocol
    7. Collection Infrastructure:At Generators BMPs to reduce food waste generation Determine sectors/businesses most likely impacted by waste ban Establish sector-based BMPs for food waste diversion TA/grant programs for public facilities TA/loan programs for private facilities Pilot programs and share case studies Specific TA/loan program for food manufacturers/processors
    8. Collection Infrastructure:Collection Services Additional information on food waste processors & haulers Recycling Loan Fund loans to haulers Work w/regional groups to develop small generator collection routes Support municipal residential collection programs Disseminate information about success stories Training for public health officials on dumpster/collection requirements
    9. Processing Capacity Development Disseminate information on technologies/assistance programs Develop education and outreach strategy  FAQ document  Partner with MassCEC  BMPs for facility development & siting Support municipal site development – both existing expansions and new Develop AD facility on state property
    10. Processing Capacity Development(cont.) Support private facility development through:  Recycling Loan Fund prioritized low interest loans  Pre-permitting assistance  Provide more capitalization and TA to farm composting/AD operations to help meet local capacity needs  Work with MassCEC, DOER, and DAR to leverage and coordinate multiple funding sources  Assess and support development of on-site food waste management solutions
    11. Market Development Work with OSD/MassPORT to enhance use of compost products in highway applications Work with agricultural sector to identify additional compost market outlets Encourage modified procurement practices by municipal highway/public works depts. and large users such as golf courses Hold compost marketing workshops Assess market outlets for AD solid and liquid products
    12. Regulatory Reform/Waste Ban Promulgate final revisions to solid waste facility regulations Implement final regulations Establish proposed waste ban on commercial/institutional food waste by 2014  Proposed ban approach/framework by Sept. 2012  Promulgate regulations June 2013  Effective date July 2014 What will ban look like – focus of 2012 subcommittee discussions
