Title: Systems Approach to Recovery and Reuse of Organic Material Flows in Santa Barbara County to Extract Maximum Value and Eliminate Waste

Can organic wastes be used to create new high-value products in Santa Barbara?

P3 researchers are calculating the social, economic, and environmental benefits of a systems approach to organic waste management in Santa Barbara County. The project will focus on the reuse of local spent brewery grain to grow and produce new, high-value products including shiitake and oyster mushrooms, worms, and nutrient-rich compost.
