On October 9-10, the Waste-to-Energy
Research and Technology Council hosted its 2014 Bi-Annual Meeting at Columbia
University in the City of New York. There were 27 presentations and 8
posters in the meeting. In 2014, the Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology
Council awarded the Republic of Korea for planning, policy and implementation of outstanding advances to recycling, composting and waste to energy during the period of 1990-2014. The Republic of Korea achieved a higher standing on the ladder of sustainable waste management than the United States, at a GDP per capita that is significantly lower. A distinguished contribution award was being given to the former COO and CTO of Covanta Energy Corp., Mr. John Klett
WTERT greatly appreciates all the speakers
and participants for their contribution to the 2014 WTERT Meeting.
