Burgeoning Prospects for Waste-to-Energy in the United States

AIChE Webinar
Originally delivered Mar 10, 2010

With heightened national interest in developing renewable energy sources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, communities are again looking at waste-to-energy as a critical tool to manage their solid waste. However, the ability of waste-to-energy facilities to thrive will rely in large part on how legislators and regulators treat waste. In this session, we take an in-depth look at federal legislation and regulations currently under consideration, and examine what potential impacts they will have on waste-to-energy.

This is the third in a 3-part series on “Waste-to-Energy”, co-partnered with the AIChE Sustainable Engineering Forum. Please note that each webinar in the series requires separate registration, and has been designed to function as both a standalone presentation and a component in the series. The other webinars in the series are Waste Management: From Major Environmental Problem to Source of Materials and Energy, and An Integrated Waste Management System for a Sustainable Society.
