Thank you to our Gold Sponsor

Thank you to our Silver Sponsor

This Second Annual EBC Organics Conference will provide a review and update on important organics related developments in New England.

Inspired by the sustainability movement and the DEP Organics Waste Ban of 2014, an infrastructure for the transportation and processing of food and green waste has been evolving in Massachusetts. This includes hauling, composting, anaerobic digestion, depackaging, and diversion to animal feed. Each niche has its own rules on what it can accept, and its own challenges. This EBC Solid Waste Management program will have speakers from across the industry discuss their field’s obstacles and successes.
