NAWTEC 2019 gathers waste-to-energy professionals
The North American Waste-to-Energy Conference (NAWTEC) will take place this year April 1-2 in Reston, Virginia. NAWTEC is a technical conference and trade show focusing on municipal waste-to-energy operational issues, technology and research initiatives. The two-day event features educational sessions, technical panels and discussions, tours and networking opportunities, along with several exhibitors.
The conference, organized in partnership by the Energy Recovery Council (ERC) and the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), gathers waste-to-energy (WTE) professionals, solid waste directors, landfill gas experts, biogas experts and solid waste industry leaders in one place to learn about the field’s latest challenges and happenings.
This year’s conference features a new layout, giving exhibitors a front-and-center position during the event. All exhibitors will be located inside the general session room and have full access to the waste-to-energy professionals during the event. The opening reception, breakfast, lunch and breaks will all be in the same room, ensuring exhibitors will be with the attendees for a majority of the event. Presentations will cover a variety of topics, from the challenges and opportunities of waste-to-energy to energy recovery and conversion technologies. Featured speakers include Peter Wright with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Ted Michaels of ERC and David Biderman of SWANA. The event will wind down with a tour to a nearby waste-to-energy facility.
