As California ramps up attempts to reduce woodland fuels for destructive wildfires a parallel effort has been emerging to both keep that woody waste out of landfills and perhaps help with the state’s need for always-on renewable energy.
In Marin County, a coalition of clean-energy, waste and natural-resources organizations is looking into how much woody green waste there is, where it’s coming from, what’s currently happening to it and what are other and potentially better things to do with it. As part of that effort, the Marin Resource Conservation District in September was awarded $500,000 for one of five pilot studies statewide on local biomass.
