Actions Related to Municipal Solid Waste Clean Incineration to Generate Energy. (Khamis)

...Recommendations

(A) Direct the City Manager to have staff:

                     (1) Explore the possibility of using clean incineration technology to reduce the volume of materials that are not being recycled or consumed in the anaerobic digester that are sent to landfills and to recover energy from this waste.

                     (2) Research California laws or regulations that help or hinder the implementation of clean incineration.

                     (3) Return to the Rules Committee with preliminary findings for consideration of placing item on the Transportation & Environment Committee workplan.

(B) Add the pursuit of clean incineration to our Legislative Priorities.

(C) Direct the City Manager to have Government Relations staff and City lobbyists reach out to our State legislative delegation to pursue clean incineration of municipal waste that would otherwise be sent to a landfill.
