Steering Committee Convened for Northeast Anaerobic Digestion Project

 

The Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA), the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC), Clean & Healthy New York, and the Connecticut Coalition for Economic and Environmental Justice are partnering on a two-year anaerobic digestion (AD) project— Developing Solutions to Regulatory Challenges and Engaging Community Support to Expand Diversion of Food Waste to Anaerobic Digestion in the Northeast. The US EPA-funded project will develop solutions to regulatory and other barriers to AD while incorporating principles of Environmental Justice (EJ) and community engagement. Supporting engagement of EJ communities with local AD facilities that are planned or already exist is also part of the project.

 

NEWMOA and NERC and our partners, Clean + Healthy and the Connecticut Coalition for Economic and Environmental Justice, are very excited to be working with such a distinguished and knowledgeable group of stakeholders on this anaerobic digestion project. The involvement of so many key people will help ensure the success of this effort. We greatly appreciate EPA’s support for this innovative initiative, said Terri Goldberg, Executive Director of NEWMOA.

 

A Steering Committee has been convened to lend their expertise and guidance about the project content and deliverables, review the publications to be developed, and promote the training webinars. According to Matthew Karmel, Esq. of Offit Kurman P.A., The Steering Committee is diverse in make-up and experience, with representatives from leaders in anaerobic digestion as well as community and environmental groups, government regulators, and other experts. As we set out on this project, we need all voices engaged in order to scale anaerobic digestion within our communities in a respectful and efficient manner.
