EPA looking at contaminated sites for renewable energy
The U.S. has an abundance of contaminated sites and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) intends to exploit their negative emanation into a source of renewable energy. The EPA has 66,000, up from 24,000, contaminated lands, landfills, and mine sites across the country that hold potential to create this renewable energy. It’s a win-win!
The RE-Powering America’s Land Initiative, started by EPA in 2008, encourages development of renewable energy on potentially contaminated land, landfills and mine sites when it is aligned with the community’s vision for the site. This recent screening supplies insight and revolutionizing support when it comes to turning liabilities to assets.
