Second Annual Waste-to-Energy and Conversion Technologies Status Report
Thursday, May 10, 2012:


1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time

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.


Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (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.

How It Works

The 90 minute session is interactive and you will be able to submit questions -live- to our esteemed speakers - via computer during the session. However, please note that since this is a discussion and not a formal presentation the only visual elements will be the information contained herein.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email.
A separate email sent a (business) day before the webinar will include a toll free dial-in phone number and access code to dial into the seminar. It will also include the Internet address and login instructions to access the webinar.
At the time of the interactive session, you will call into the toll-free number via phone or speakerphone and log in to the special website. You will follow the presentation on the web; the Instructors will manage the timing and page changes of the presentation directly.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions at specified times during the presentation. All participants will be able to hear both the questions and answers.

Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
