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

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.
