Facility Tour:  Tour of the UC Davis Renewable Energy Anaerobic Digester


  • Katie Chapman, CleanWorld
  • Jessica Siegel, Project Compost


Come join us for a tour of the UC Davis Renewable Energy Anaerobic Digester facility.  The facility is a state-of-the-art system, built and operated by CleanWorld, for converting household yard and food waste into methane, a renewable fuel, and then uses that fuel to generate electricity for the campus.  After the tour we will travel to Village Pizza and Grill and discuss the facility with Katie Chapman of CleanWorld.  We will also have a brief presentation from Jessica Siegel of Project Compost.  Project Compost is a student-run and student funded unit of the Associated Students of California, Davis (ASUCD), made up of 4 student staff and several volunteers.  The group collects organic waste from various locations on campus and also leads backyard compost and vermi-compost workshops for people in the Davis community.

This event is organized by the Mother Lode Chapter of the Air and Waste Management Association.  This event may be attended by students and their professors, and interested members and their colleagues.  We welcome representatives of regulatory agencies, academia, industry, community and environmental groups, and the consulting community.
