TTC Staff Work With Biogas Industry on Federal Tax Breaks

The Waste-to-Energy Technology Act of 2011 (H.R. 66) would provide a 30 percent tax credit to eligible waste-to-energy facilities using municipal solid waste or sewage sludge. With the potential boost it would give to the biogas industry, the American Biogas Council is lobbying for support.
