[GreenYes] Residential Organics Project


Kendall,

You raised some good questions to clarify our Residential Organics
Project. Please note that this project is concerned with more than
just food scraps. In most parts of the country, food soiled paper is
a significant portion of residential organics as well.

Q1 - Are you focused solely on vehicular collection of
source-separated organics?

A1 - No. As you know, some communities have chosen to collect some
residential organics (food scraps) through their sewer system where
they have sufficient capacity in their sewer lines and wastewater
treatment processing capacity. We would welcome your suggestion of
some examples of communities in Region 9 that have made a conscious
decision to direct food scraps in that manner as well, particularly
if they have technical data that they can share with us.

Q2 - Processing in composting facilities that only accept food scraps
and/or yard waste?

A2 - We ARE interested in composting facilities that only accept food
scraps, so that we can better understand any advantages of composting
those materials separately. We are NOT interested in composting
facilities that only accept yard trimmings, as that is not the focus
of our research.

Q3 - Are you interested in energy recovery from processing operations?

A3 - We are interested in obtaining examples of energy and fuels
recovery from processing of food scraps, or portions of food scraps
(e.g., biodiesel production).
