Video Available Of Joint Conservation Committee Environmental Forum On BioGas

A video of the October 15 Joint House-Senate Legislative Air and Water Pollution Control and Conservation Committee Environmental Issues Forum on biogas and bioenergy from organic waste is now available.
Janice Kelsey, Vice President of Solar CITIES, Inc. and Dan Spracklin, CEO of SoMax BioEnergy presented information on the technology and process behind biogas and bioenergy.
During the hour-long discussion, Kelsey and Spracklin described the processes and mechanisms behind converting organic waste materials such as food scraps and septic waste into byproducts that can then be used for a variety of purposes such as providing electricity, heat and fuel to communities.
The presenters discussed the environmental, health and economic impacts of transforming organic waste into biogas and bioenergy, as well as the importance of educating the public about the benefits of biogas initiatives.
“Pennsylvania is privileged to have many resources at its disposal, however, with that, comes the responsibility of ensuring that we are practicing environmental stewardship and planning for a sustainable future,” said Rep. Carolyn Comitta (D-Chester), a member of the Joint Committee. “Solar CITIES and SoMax BioEnergy have paved the way for communities here in Pennsylvania and across the globe to create energy resources out of accessible materials, while also reducing carbon emissions and the reliance on landfills.”
