BHS CEO asks U.S. Lawmakers to Extend Tax Credits

Steve Miller spoke in front of the Senate's Finance Committee on energy tax policy

 

 

From Resource Recycling’s Jared Paben

Expanding and extending tax credits for biogas would help spur investments in anaerobic digestion and related composting technologies, the CEO of Bulk Handling Systems told U.S. senators last week.

Steve Miller, CEO of Eugene, Ore.-based BHS, spoke on June 14 at a U.S. Senate Finance Committee hearing on energy tax policy.

Recycling equipment manufacturer BHS is involved in anaerobic digestion equipment through its Lafayette, Calif.-based company Zero Waste Energy LLC. The company’s systems derive biogas from organics in the municipal solid waste stream, using it to create electricity or power collection trucks running on natural gas. Residual solids are used to create compost.

Miller noted increased investments would divert more material from landfill, create high-paying jobs domestically, increase renewable fuel production and yield more compost for agriculture.
