Power Lunch Lecture - Food Waste Recycling - Composting and Renewable Natural Gas

April 21, 2015, 12:00 - 1:00 pm

Presented by A1 Organics Vice President Bob Yost

Bob Yost with A1 Organics will present an overview of organic recycling related to the food waste stream utilizing both composting and anaerobic digestion. The presentation will present the entire sustainability loop, from collection to composting, to renewable natural gas from North America's largest co-digestion facility, to the creation of valuable soil amendments, to the production of new food.

Known for his expertise in all aspects of organic recycling, Mr. Yost is involved in several research and educational endeavors surrounding the beneficial use of organics in soil and soil amendment applications, petroleum hydrocarbon remediation, and innovative organic recycling methods. He is a frequent presenter at industry conferences.

Mr. Yost also routinely participates on various stakeholder advisory groups at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. In 2002, Mr. Yost developed a Soil Amendment Classification System to assist in evaluation and comparison of products and their applications. The system has continued to develop and is now being used in numerous specification documents within the industry. It was adopted by the Rocky Mountain Organics Council in 2005.

Call the Education Center to make a reservation for this free public program. Participants are welcome to bring a lunch to enjoy during the presentation.
