Co-Digestion Grant Program

CalRecycle administers the Co-Digestion Grant Program to lower overall greenhouse gas emissions by building new and expanded food waste co-digestion projects that increase the tonnage of California-generated organic waste diverted from landfills to a co-digestion system.

These funds support reaching California goals to reduce short-lived climate pollutants by increasing organic waste infrastructure capacity.


Eligible applicants include:
