Cal Recycle to Meet on Short-Lived Climate Pollutants
September 28, 2017
CalRecycle is holding two informal stakeholder implementation workshops about methane emissions targets established by SB 1383 (Lara 2016) ahead of a potential rulemaking next year. SB 1383 is a statewide effort to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) in various sectors of California’s economy.
Part of this reduction will have to come from diversion and processing of organic materials away from California’s landfills. CSAC and other local partners have concerns that California lacks both the organics management infrastructure and financing to meet these increased targets.
The first workshop is in Sacramento on October 30, followed by second workshop on November 2 in Southern California at a location yet to be determined. For more information about organic waste diversion and short-lived climate pollution click here.
