Webinar: How EPA’s Waste Reduction Model (WARM) Quantifies the GHG Impacts of Organics Management

June 2nd, 2016 at 1pm Pacific

Register here

EPA recently released an updated version (v.14) of the Waste Reduction Model (WARM). WARM calculates the energy and greenhouse emissions of baseline and alternative waste management practices—source reduction, recycling, anaerobic digestion, combustion, composting and landfilling.  The newly added anaerobic digestion pathway enables users to quantify the energy and emissions benefits of sending organic materials to a wet or dry digester. 

Join this webinar to:

-                      Learn how anaerobic digestion was modeled

-                      Understand how WARM models organics and the differences between the organics categories such as food waste, yard trimmings, and mixed organics

-                      Quantify the GHG emissions and energy impacts of source reducing, donating, and composting food

-                      Discuss questions on the modeling of organics management pathways within WARM
