DOE announces technical assistance for local governments on waste-to-energy

July 11, 2021 |

In Washington, D.C., the U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office and National Renewable Energy Laboratory announced the Phase 1 selections for the Waste-to-Energy Technical Assistance for Local Governments Program, which was created to mobilize national laboratory analyses and technical expertise around energy and resource recovery from organic waste streams (e.g. food waste, sewage sludge, animal manure, as well as fats, oils, and greases).

The insights and analyses will provide an avenue for municipalities and tribal governments to make informed decisions about closing waste loops and generating additional value streams from waste.

Phase 1 will fund collaborations between NREL and 16 local government entities to provide strategic planning support, quantification of local organic waste resources, and mitigation approaches for localized environmental impacts, among other high priority concerns.
