THE WASTE CONVERSION MARKET IS PROJECTED TO REACH $29 BILLION
Meet Key Players from the Entire Value Chain Network on How to Finance & Develop Waste Conversion Projects
- Federal, State and Industry policy-makers discuss the available incentives, grants and opportunities driving the market
- Muncipalities, Cities and Counties share waste conversion lessons learned and implications for future projects
- Utilities and Offtakers to provide their perspectives on acquiring energy from waste and contracting needs
- Financiers and Developers will share their perspectives and needs in financing the next generation of waste conversion projects
A $29 billion annual waste conversion market has been projected, driven by a growing scarcity
of land for waste disposal, shifts away from greenhouse gas emissions and nuclear power,
and increasing demand for renewable energy and fuels. In the U.S. alone, anaerobic digesters
could power 2.5 million homes a year if 50% of food waste was used as a feedstock. And
anaerobic digestion projects recently received a boost from an EPA ruling allowing biogasderived
compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects to qualify as an
advanced cellulosic biofuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The prospect of combining
Californiaís Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), RFS, and other environmental incentives makes
California in particular an attractive place for new biogas and clean fuels projects.
Despite these prospects, substantial challenges and hurdles remain. First, which bioenergy conversion technology is the best fit? How will you deliver an operational project that is both cost effective and scalable? Lastly, will your project be financeable and can you get it permitted? Projects of all sizes continue to move forward but only those equipped with a complete forecast of the current market climate and regulatory landscape, and an understanding of waste conversion technologies will succeed.
Infocastís Waste to Biogas & Clean Fuels F&I Summit will bring together key government decision makers, municipalities, utilities, off-takers, commercial generators and fleet owners with feedstock providers, waste service companies, conversion technology companies, project /infrastructure developers, EPCs, and financiers to develop and finance the next generation of waste to biogas and clean fuels projects. The summit will also bring waste conversion stakeholders together with fleet owners, aviation and naval biofuel leaders, CNG/LNG infrastructure developers, and alternative clean vehicle companies to outline the opportunities available for waste to BioCNG/LNG/Fuels projects and to fuel industry growth.
