Date:3/30/2011

A new series of events at the New York Academy of Sciences explores options for managing municipal solid waste that may offer large cities sustainable alternatives to landfill disposal and conventional incineration. The first event in the "Trash Talk" series on Thursday, April 7, will examine several new waste-to-energy technologies, among them, gasification and biological treatment.

Experts will explain how these technologies work, discuss their advantages, and probe issues related to them. Other topics in the series will include: Modelswhat innovative practices are other cities adopting? Business perspectiveswhat market opportunities are emerging? Policywhat options best serve NYC's sustainability goals? Financinghow can better waste management practices for NYC be financed within severe fiscal constraints?
