Municipal PCR Draft Credit 8: Alternative Fueled Rolling Stock (x points)

Intent:

Reduce atmospheric emissions associated with recovery of solid waste and promote renewable and low-carbon intensity alternatives to non-renewable transportation fuels.

Requirements:

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

Potential Strategies

  • Natural gas or landfill gas vehicles
  • Electric powered vehicles
  • Solar power charging stations
  • Diesel Hybrids
  • MRF Energy consumption
  • Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
    • Prevention and/or mitigation of compost emissions
    • Landfill emission intensity
