DOE BETO and NREL launch Waste-to-Energy technical assistance program

March 7, 2021 |

In Washington, D.C., the U.S Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are launching an organic Waste-to-Energy technical assistance program for local governments.

Organic waste streams, such as food waste and wastewater sludge, represent significant environmental, economic, and social sustainability challenges for municipalities. BETO has funded analyses assessing these waste streams and various aspects of their management, such as existing uses and costs of disposal.

Given that these waste streams require local solutions, this technical assistance program seeks to provide municipalities with the most relevant data for their decision-making. BETO will fund up to 40 hours of subject matter assistance to municipalities topics, including:

  • Waste resource information
  • Infrastructure considerations
  • Techno-economic comparison of options
  • Equity assessments
