Reduce atmospheric emissions associated with recovery of solid waste and promote renewable and low-carbon intensity alternatives to non-renewable transportation fuels.
Demonstrate, on a percentage basis, the use of renewable or low-emission fuels in the on-site vehicles. The percentage of alternative fuel use can be determined on the basis of either the fraction of the vehicle fleet or the fraction of annual hours used.
Tier 1: 30 percent or more use of alternative fuels use of onsite vehicles/rolling stock with hours as the primary meter
Tier 2: 60 percent or more use of alternative fuels use of onsite vehicles/rolling stock with hours as the primary meter
- Direct or indirect (e.g. LFG biogas co-generated electricity) utilization of landfill gas (LFG) or anaerobic digester gas (biogas) for vehicles counts as 1.5X other types of alternative fueled vehicles
- Natural gas or landfill gas vehicles
- Electric powered vehicles
- Solar power charging stations
- Diesel Hybrids
