California Bioresources Alliance Symposium

The ninth annual California Bioresources Alliance Symposium will be held June 3-4 at UC Davis and will feature the latest research in the field being done at UC Davis on organic residuals issues.

Sessions will include legislative and policy developments on organic residuals in California, impacts of mandatory recycling and landfill closures, waste-to-energy issues, biogas issues including clustering dairies and use for vehicle fuel, and local initiatives. The symposium brings together industry professionals, municipalities, regulators, legislators, state and federal agencies, students, researchers, financers and others involved in California organic residuals.

The two-day event is co-hosted by UC Davis Extension and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 9.
