Santa Barbara County Issues Alternatives to Disposal Final Report

Santa Barbara County has been researching conversion technologies as an alternative to landfilling and issued a Request For Information. The Alternative to Disposal subgroup of the County's Multi-jurisdictional Solid Waste Task Group has issued a final report which describes the work of the Subgroup. The purpose of the Subgroup was to identify and evaluate the feasibility of conversion technologies in Santa Barbara County. The Subgroup has concluded that there are seven solid waste conversion technologies that are best suited and capable of providing feasible alternatives to landfilling in Santa Barbara County.

Lifecycle and Market Impact Analysis Work

Research Triangle Institute, the CIWMB's contractor for lifecycle/market impact analyses of conversion technologies, will be finalizing the methodologies to be used for the lifecycle and market impact analyses. Some modifications are being made in response to comments received interested parties who attended an August 11, 2003 workshop where the methodologies were discussed. In addition, comments were received by peer reviewers and other interested parties who were unable to attend the workshop. Upon receipt, the finalized methodologies will be posted on the CIWMB's Conversion Technology web page. Any questions regarding the lifecycle analyses project can be directed to Fernando Berton at (916) 341-6590 or via email at fberton@no.address
