1 Conversion Technology Subgroup Meeting Moving Forward

2 Reasons/Objectives of CT Limit landfill dependence Increase diversion Produce green energy

3 History Local jurisdictions embraced goals of CT Commitment of Interest in CT from TJ jurisdictions made in County of SB County of SB City of SB City of SB City of Goleta City of Goleta City of Buellton City of Buellton City of Solvang City of Solvang

4 History of Committee Subgroup of interested jurisdictions Tajiguas wasteshed jurisdictions only

5 History of Committee RFQ issued & reviewed Preferred vendors identified Air Quality Tests were requested To be funded by vendors Lack of participation

6 Recent History of Committee Vendors withdrew from further participation High financial risk for vendors Lack of commitment seen from jurisdictions Lack of support from State

7 The Present Reviewing options and planning next steps

8 Present Situation What we need… Our goals are the same Our goals are the same What we know… Conversion technologies have many similarities Conversion technologies have many similarities Power plant - green energy producers MRF Residual of 5% to 20%

9 Power Plant Conversion Technology Materials Recovery Facility Trash Conversion Technology in Action Landfill Residual Landfill gas

10 The Alternative Plan According to MJSWTG Final Report - If NO conversion technology is selected Dirty MRF Composting Materials Recovery Facility Trash Landfill Residual $ Compost

11 Power Plant Trash What We Have Landfill Landfill gas

12 Power Plant Materials Recovery Facility Trash Possible Next Step Landfill Residual Landfill gas $ Compost

13 Power Plant Conversion Technology Materials Recovery Facility Trash What We Want Landfill Residual Landfill gas

14 Next Steps Continue to pursue our goals Minimizing landfill dependence Increase diversion Evaluating CT to produce MORE green energy Build a “Mixed Waste” Materials Recovery Facility at Tajiguas Landfill

15 Benefits of a South Coast Mixed Waste MRF Additional cost effective diversion Estimated up to 20% Estimated up to 20% Flexibility for future diversion Composting Composting Conversion Technology Conversion Technology

16 Benefits of a South Coast Mixed Waste MRF Environmental Stewardship Continues our efforts to improve our environment Reduced financial exposure Better understanding of waste stream

17 Options for Next Step Status Quo Financial study – conducted by Subgroup (public staff or private consultant) Participating jurisdictions jointly develop RFP for “Mixed Waste” MRF

18 End of Presentation Questions & Discussion
