Philadelphia Hosts Waste Conversion Congress

The Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia served as the site of the Waste Conversion Technology Congress 2011, on June 8 and 9.

The event was organized and hosted by London-based FC Business Intelligence and its EyeforEnergy division. According to EyeforEnergy, the event’s focus was on:
• Waste conversion technology, including case studies from global providers of waste conversion technologies;
• Financing, including private sector views on waste conversion technology investment and an update on the United States Department of Energy’s Loan Guarantees;
• International Project Planning, including strategies to mitigate risk, drive down costs and increase a company’s bottom line; and
• Project approval and development, from getting a project approved in a timely, cost-effective way to workable solutions to common project challenges.

“This event is unique because it addresses the issues which block commercial progress and development,” said EyeForEnergy. “It will unlock the vast potential of municipal solid waste as a profitable revenue generator [and] will address all the key hurdles that need to be overcome by this rapidly emerging industry while also showcasing success stories from across the United States and Europe,” the event organizer said.

Speakers at the event include:
• Harvey Gershman of Gershman, Brickner & Bratton Inc., Fairfax, Va.
• Tim Cesarek, managing director - organic growth, Waste Management Inc., Houston
• John Eustermann, a partner with law firm Stoel Rives, Boise, Idaho
• Ted Michaels, president of the Energy Recovery Council, Washington, D.C.
• Jonathan Silver, executive director of the United States Department of Energy Loan Guarantee Program, Washington, D.C.
