LA County seeks legislation to convert 8 million tons of waste into fuel

October 2, 2012 |

In California, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved a motion to ask federal and state legislators to update the state’s trash conversion technologies. The motion seeks to support legislation that will bolster development of technologies to convert L.A. County’s 8 million tons of annual landfill waste into energy. Similar technologies already exist and private companies are installing waste-to-energy plants around the world. The L.A. Country Board of Supervisors is urgently looking for solutions to divert waste from its rapidly growing landfills.
