BIOWASTE CENTER has leveraged available data to align the economics of where and when to deploy resource recovery centers. The data has included the cost of “Tipping Fees” by state in a matrix that aligns the Tipping Fees with the cost of electricity in kilowatt hours (kWh) to determine the optimal economics with the highest return on investment (ROI). BIOWASTE CENTER has matched the data on state-by-state legislation for separation of organics in waste removal to determine which areas of the country are the “low hanging fruit” for positioning centers.
