Sixth Annual Conference on Solid Waste Management in Northern New England

The Future is Here – New Technologies on the Cutting Edge

Landfills are closing, waste-to-energy plants are full, recycling rates are flat, China’s import bans have knocked the waste and recycling industry back, and waste generation is increasing. Will New England rail haul our waste West or will the industry see some new technologies enter the market?

Join EBC, SWANA, and NRRA as we assemble representatives from new technologies on the cutting edge, including: Anaerobic Digestion, Pyrolosis, Gasification, Fuel Pellets, Robotics, Single Bin, and more. Come hear about the current state of the industry and how far along each of these technologies are with actual projects. You do not want to miss this program!

Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.

For SWANA Certified Professionals – CEUs are available. Contact the EBC for the application form. If you have any questions, please call 1-800 GO SWANA or email [email protected].

Lunch is included with the registration fee.
