In Marin, an innovative project to turn food waste into renewable energy
Restaurants and caterers throw away tons of unused food scraps each day. A new project in Marin is working to keep that food out of the landfill and using it to create renewable, clean-burning bio gas. After nearly 5 years of negotiations and testing, it officially began operations yesterday.
Organizers say the project, called the Food-to-Energy (F2E) program, is the first of its kind: a partnership between a the private Marin Sanitary Service and the public Central Marin Sanitation Agency.
