Use public-private partnerships to convert municipal waste into renewable energy (gas)

As states develop policies to divert organic waste from landfills, municipalities must develop solutions to meet these demands. By leveraging public-private partnerships, local agencies that manage wastewater and solid waste can upgrade existing infrastructure to cost-effectively process organic waste. The result? Less waste in landfills, an increase in low-carbon RNG and organic fertilizers, and more sustainable communities.

Watch this 75-minute recording of the Renewable Gas 360 webinar to hear from industry leaders:

  • Describe the organic waste diversion mandates implemented at the state and federal levels
  • Share case studies highlighting successful public-private partnerships in the municipal wastewater and solid waste sectors
  • Discuss innovative technologies and solutions that complement public sector efforts in landfill diversion and renewable gas production


The Renewable Gas 360 webinar series will provide an ongoing program on the critical role that renewable gases (hydrogen, methane, propane and syngas) can play in helping states reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and achieve the carbon neutrality.

The webinar series is hosted by SoCalGas, the Propane Education & Research Council and Pacific Gas & Electric. Sponsors include Anaergia, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Bloom Energy, BP, California Natural Gas Vehicle Partnership, CR&R, Fuel Cell Energy, GTI, Ingevity, Meridiam, NW Natural, Shell, South Coast Air Quality Management District, Southwest Gas , and SunGas Renewables.

The webinar series is co-produced by ACT News, GNA and the Bioenergy Association of California. Supporting organizations include Advanced Power & Energy Program at UC Irvine, American Biogas Council, California Fuel Cell Partnership, California Hydrogen Business Council, California Stationary Fuel Cell Collaborative, Climate Resolve, Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, Energy Vision, Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association, and Green Hydrogen Coalition.
