Biomass Magazine reports on the recent grants awarded through the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) Recycling Business Development Grant (RBDG) program. The RBDG program focuses on difficult-to-recycle materials, including packaged food and glass. The recent awards went to projects focused on maximizing the use of the packaging and the food material. CRMC Bioenergy LLC, El Harvey and Sons Inc., and Troiano Trucking received grant funding.
This grant funding helps support the MassDEP goals to reduce the disposal of wasted food. These grants also support infrastructure development for diverting and processing organics. Last year, MassDEP received an Environmental Merit Award from EPA New England for its commitment to reducing food waste.
