In August, the provincial government announced it would be promoting the conversion of landfill waste into clean power by outlawing its export. As reported by Black Press's Jeff Nagel "some of B.C.'s best-connected lobbyists" registered to represent companies that could benefit from that announcement. But now it looks like another firm is looking to get in on the action. Hill and Knowlton Canada Ltd. intergrated communications and public affairs director Tamara Little has signed-up on the lobbyists registry to represent the interests of Boston-based Harvest Power Inc.. The company has a so-called "dry fermentation" technology that can be used to capture the energy content in food and yard waste. According to its Website, the technology's "process and simplicity ideally complement existing compost and landfill facilities."
