Anaerobic digestion (AD) can be used to treat organic materials such as food waste together with municipal wastewater treatment biosolids to produce renewable energy and provide a beneficial soil amendment byproduct. Organics co-digestion is an option for effective management of various waste products that requires coordination across multiple stakeholder groups. This webinar will feature educational presentations from industry experts on the basics of organic waste co-digestion, recent research, utilization of biogas and soil amendments, how FDEP is changing its regulatory structure to encourage anaerobic digestion projects statewide and how EPA is helping expand anaerobic digester capacity and reducing food waste. Continuing education units for PE licenses will be available to participants.
