    SVForum Transforming Waste into Energy - by DJ Cline



    New energy solutions are being discovered and refined to overcome the budget constraints of high oil prices and mitigate the environmental impacts of carbon waste. Something that does not get a lot of headlines is utilizing existing consumer waste and transforming it into energy. We want to highlight its significance internationally, and potentially discuss why it is an under-utilized resource in the United States.
    Our panel discussion will include topics addressing:

    • Emerging trends in this industry, going beyond traditional biofuels, and focusing more on consumer and carbon waste
    • Technology needs and promise in sorting, conversion, and transformation of waste into energy and fuel needs
    • Product cycle issues including Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), producer responsibilities, and zero waste trends
