Facility Tour:  Compost and Carbon Sequestration


  • John Wick, Marin Carbon Project/Carbon Cycle Institute


As we complete the United Nations' first International Year of Soils, we are pleased to invite you to learn more about the important roles both air and waste management can play in creating healthy soil and mitigating climate change.  Beginning with a tour of Recology's Hay Road facility, we will have the opportunity to learn more about an advanced air pollution control technology for industrial composting using aerated static piles.  Our event continues at the Yolo-Solano AQMD offices with our dinner speaker, John Wick of the Marin Carbon Project/Carbon Cycle Institute, sharing the critical research they have conducted in conjunction with UC Berkeley on rangelands in California, and the implications of that research on climate change, habitat and soil restoration, water conservation, and the vital role we play in solving the 21st century's most pressing environmental issues. Prepare to be inspired.
