Presented by
Harvey Gershman and Margaret Eldridge

Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (GBB) invites you to sign up for a 90-minute interactive web conference entitled "Second Annual Waste-to-Energy & Conversion Technologies Status Report" presented by Harvey Gershman, GBB President, and Margaret Eldridge, GBB Senior Project Manager.

The event will take place Thursday May 10, 2012, between 1pm and 2:30pm Eastern Time and is organized by B2b


This 90-minute webinar will provide the latest status report on the constantly evolving waste-to-energy (WTE) and conversion technologies (CT) landscape, beginning with an overview of the solid waste management landscape in the US, and a look at what lies ahead for these technologies. Information will be provided on the evolution of the environmental impact of WTE facilities and improvements made over the past 40 years, with the advent of better technology and increased environmental awareness.

GBB tracks over 500 different WTE and CT companies and their technologies, facilities and services, up from 150+ in 2009, whose developmental stages range from engineering drawings and laboratory models to full-scale operating prototypes. This webinar will include the latest information on these technologies, their costs, and the current status of projects developing across North America and Europe. It will also provide a review of WTE technologies as an element of integrated solid waste management systems and highlight some of the advances that have been moved into production units to make WTE environmentally friendly. An overview of the more significant offerings that have received demonstration grants or have significant operating or prototype facilities will also be provided along with a look at what lies ahead. A review of the risks and challenges associated with implementing various technologies will be provided. It will also include a brief look at plants worldwide with a focus on facilities, technologies and companies operating in the U.S.

The webinar will conclude with brief case studies of municipalities expanding, developing, or exploring WTE/CT facilities.
