Attendees will hear the “Pitfalls and Lessons Learned” from project managers throughout the United States.
Waste conversion projects have many hurdles to overcome. Not only can these projects be expensive to build, but winning support from government officials, environmental groups and the public can be a challenge.
During the Renewable Energy from Waste Conference, taking place Nov. 18-20 in West Palm Beach, Fla., attendees will hear about two different projects with two very different outcomes.
During the Keynote session on Nov. 19, titled “Pitfalls and Lessons Learned,” Mark Hammond, executive director of the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County, West Palm Beach, Fla., will discuss the first mass-burn waste-to-energy plant being built in the U.S. in more than 15 years.
Also during the session, Pete Johnson, vice president, Dynamis Energy, Eagle, Idaho, will share his company’s experience in Ada County, Idaho, where after two years of working to get a project built, the county ended negotiations.
The two case studies are bound to spur a lively discussion. During a questions during a question and answer period attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to the panelists.
The Renewable Energy from Waste Conference event is organized by the Recycling Today Media Group in partnership with Gershman, Brickner & Bratton (GBB) and Smithers Apex.
