Using Public-Private Partnerships to Convert Municipal Waste into Renewable Energy (Gases)

In partnership with:

As states develop policies to divert organic waste from landfills, municipalities must develop solutions to meet these requirements. By leveraging public-private partnerships, local agencies that manage wastewater and solid waste can retrofit existing infrastructure to cost effectively process organic wastes.  The result? Less waste in landfills, increased low carbon RNG and organic fertilizer, and more sustainable communities.

Watch this 75-minute Renewable Gas 360 webinar recording to hear industry leaders:

  • Describe the organic waste diversion mandates being implemented across state and federal levels
  • Share case studies highlighting successful public-private partnerships within the wastewater and municipal solid waste sectors
  • Discuss innovative technologies and solutions that complement the public sector’s efforts in landfill diversion and renewable gas generation




Renewable Gas 360The Renewable Gas 360 webinar series will provide continuous curriculum on the critical role renewable gases—renewable hydrogen, methane, propane and syngas—can play in helping states reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.

The webinar series is hosted by SoCalGas, Propane Education & Research Council, and Pacific Gas & Electric. Sponsors include Anaergia, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Bloom Energy, BP, California Natural Gas Vehicle Partnership, CR&R, Fuel Cell Energy, GTI, Ingevity, Meridiam, NW Natural, Shell, South Coast Air Quality Management District, Southwest Gas, and SunGas Renewables.
