You are Invited: Emissions, Ecology, and the Economy: U.S. and European Perspectives on Waste Management

The Environmental Change and Security Program and

the Program on America and the Global Economy present:

Emissions, Ecology, and the Economy: U.S. and European Perspectives on Waste Management

Christian Egenhofer, Centre for European Policy (Brussels)

Suzanne Rudzinski, Office Director, Resource Conservation and Recovery, Environmental Protection Agency
Lori Scozzafava, Deputy Executive Director, Solid Waste Association of North America

Ecological waste management has the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. Germany has already proven that significant energy and costs can be saved by replacing the practice of landfilling untreated municipal waste with energy efficient treatment techniques and by separating the collection and use of recyclable materials.

Please join us for a discussion by European and US experts to showcase the greening of the waste management sector.

This event is part of the “Transatlantic Climate Bridge”, an initiative launched by the German government in 2008 to foster transatlantic cooperation and partnerships between Germany and the U.S. in the climate and energy area at the local, state and federal level
