Special One-Day Workshop at WASTECON
Implementing Energy-from-Waste (EfW) Projects: Sorting Through the Noise
August 13, 2012 | Washington, D.C.
With rising gasoline and oil prices the nation is once again talking about energy independence and the need for alternative renewable energy supplies. Solid waste professionals are overwhelmed with options for converting non-recycled municipal solid waste into energy, including conventional and emerging technology options.
This 1-day workshop will show public solid waste professionals how to sort through the noise and provide the technical evaluation and the project procurement approaches needed to implement a successful EfW project.
The course instructors have more than 75 years of experience in implementing EfW projects. They have the engineering, technical, economic, financial and legal expertise to address most of issues and questions participants may have concerning their own programs and projects.
