3 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, What & Who is ACP? A Public/Private Association - 501(C)3 - of: –Public and Private Organics Residual Generators Green Waste, Food Waste Manure, Biosolids –Public and Private Compost Producers –Public and Private Compost Marketer/Distributors Our Vision: Supporting beneficial reuse of organics in California, with compost playing a central role to build and maintain sustainable healthy soils, keeping our state’s lands productive, green and biologically diverse for generations to come. Burrtec Carbon Solutions Group City of Santa Rosa County of San Bernardino Engel and Gray Garick Corporation (a Waste Management Company) Green N2 Green Harvest Power Inland Empire Utilities Agency Kellogg Garden Products Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts P.F. Ryan and Associates Rainbow Disposal Serrano Creek Soil Amendments South Orange County Wastewater Authority Synagro University of California, Cooperative Extension Vision Recycling Our Mission: Dedicated to increasing the quality, value and amount of compost being used in California. We do this by promoting activities and regulations that build healthy soil, benefiting people and protecting air, water and soil. ACP members work and invest together to increase compost markets and improve compost product & manufacturing standards. The association provides education & communication on compost benefits & proper use through support of scientific research & legislation aligned with developing and expanding quality compost markets.

4 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, Air District & Industry Representatives: South Coast Air Board: on PR Green Waste Air Pollution Control Rules (affecting South Coast composters) – –Tracy Goss, Program Supervisor, PM Strategies, South Coast Air Quality Management District. San Joaquin Air Board: on PR Green Waste Air Pollution Control Rules (affecting San Joaquin Valley composters and chip & grind operations –Errol Villegas, Program Manager - Strategies & Incentives Department, San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District PR 4566 Compost Industry Working Group: –Matt Cotton, past President of the US Composting Council, and respected compost consultant, with Integrated Waste Management Consulting, will give some background and be available for our discussion. CalRecycle: –Robert Horowitz, Integrated Waste Management Specialist, Statewide Technical and Analytical Resources Division, who has been engaged in the PR 4566 and 1133 processes, will also present and be available for our discussion

5 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, Organics Industry Sector Impacts Next Organizing Steps Discussion –Consistent material identification & process definitions –Composters Impacts –Chip & Grind Facility Impacts –Haulers, MRF's, Landfill Impacts Action Plan –Establish an Industry Working Group –Develop letter from ACP and/or Working Group –Set up meetings with Governing Board Members to discuss impact of rules. –ACP request meetings with Air District's staffs

6 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, Organics = Renewable Carbon Management Manure (cows, chicken, pig, other?) Green Residuals/ By- Products (Waste?) –Landscape (urban forest) –Agriculture (food shed) –Natural Environment (watersheds) Food Residuals/ By-Products (Waste?) –Plant food –Soiled paper –Meat Biosolids (processed municipal sewage sludge) Feedstock Agnostics Product and Process Quality Chauvinists “We Build Healthy Soil”

7 © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, Organic Carbon & Soil Organisms Compost Contains ~50% Organic Matter by Weight Organic Matter is made of Carbon Compounds so it: –Provides food (energy) to the soil organisms –Provides tilth for water infiltration, holding and oxygen penetration –Sequesters carbon Must keep adding to the soil as it is eaten (decomposed) by the soil organisms Also it provides Organic Nutrients (“NPK”, i.e. nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium)

8 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, COMPOST: From Dead Dirt, to Living Soil Main Applications –Landscape –Agriculture –Erosion Control and Restoration Specifications are Key –User Driven Specifications –Landscape Specifications (Manual) –Compost Use Index

9 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, Main Compost Applications/Markets Landscape Agriculture Erosion Control and Watershed Restoration

10 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, The Organics Value Cycle Generate: Landscape trimmings Food/Ag waste Biosolids Manure Use: Landscape Agriculture Environmental Bioenergy Haul, Pre-process: Process: Compost Chip and Grind Anaerobic Digestion Fertilizer Energy (gas, electric) Market: Compost Fertilizer Energy Gov. Agencies EPA air, water, solids LEA Planning CDFA CEC/PUC, etc., etc. Communicate (Sell!) & Report Communicate & Report Communicate & Report Communicate & Report Communicate & Report

11 “We Build Healthy Soil” 11 Nested Resource Cycles Tier 1: Residential, On-site/Facility - “Onsite Market” Tier 2: Community, Municipality, Agency – Wholesale - Retail “Markets” Tier 3: Between Communities – “Government to Wholesale Markets ” Indu stry ResidentialCommercial No one niche is “right,” correct or “the best.” Sanitation (water & solids) agencies are typically involved in all at the same time. Solids & Water Market Development Strategies and Tactics must work synergistically to build resource value and system efficiency (esp. w/ energy!!). This is still a goal to which all our communities are actively working.

12 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, Questions? Comments? Discussion… Dan Noble, Executive Director Bus: (619) Cell: (619) Skype: dan.noble “We Build Healthy Soil”

13 © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, How Specific Players Will Benefit Generator Hauler Preprocessor (chip & grinder) Composter Regulator Supplier Energy Recovery Marketer End-user Use as a regulatory reporting tool Access lowest collection & tipping fees Access more customer accounts Reporting tool Access lowest tipping fees Access quality organics sources Reporting tool Access best & transport tipping fees Improve product quality and price Access more customers Get the best prices Access right material Learning tool Access best prices Access/communicate with regulated community Reporting tool, regulation

14 “We Build Healthy Soil” © 2010 Association of Compost Producers, Data Use –Generators need to determine “tipping fees”, hauler relationships and “disposal options”, and waste reporting and permitting. –Haulers need to determine “tipping fee”, and whether they can make money off the sale, or should they get in the processing business? –Processor-Producers use it for market development and monitoring (of feedstock and finished products) –Marketer & Users (customers) Use it to source, sell and deliver quality material Agriculture and landscape carbon Agriculture and landscape nutrients Bioenergy
