The EPA has announced the availability of funds and is soliciting applications that will demonstrate means of accelerating the development of new or enhance/increase existing anaerobic digestion capacity and infrastructure in the United States from food waste. Food waste diverted from landfills and incinerators can be managed at anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities. The AD process generates renewable energy (biogas) and a product that can improve soil health (digestate). Food waste AD reduces landfill methane emissions.
Applications are due October 7, 2021. To learn more, visit grants.gov.
