By efficiently reducing greenhouse gases resulting from organic waste, Sustainable

Generation's composting solutions, using GORE® Cover technology, have a long track

record of success in California.


Strong environmental awareness and aggressive climate goals, linked to landfill

diversion targets, provide optimal conditions for the technology-which meet or

exceed the state's environmental regulatory requirements.


While the Clean Air Act - established in 1970 and amended several times since then -

is a United States federal law, California has taken control of the state's environmental

future by addressing its unique air pollution problems through regulation.


California is divided into 35 Air Districts. Each District faces its own unique challenges,

ranging from traffic-related smog in Los Angeles to greenhouse gases in the San

Joaquin Valley, caused by nitrogen compounds combined with dust particles from

farming.


The following results, for existing permitted facilities, provide a glimpse into VOC

emission control performance utilizing GORE® Cover technology in the Golden State.
