SVForum Presents “Transforming Waste into Energy” on September 20 (Discount Available)

SVForumOn September 20, SVForum will present the next program in its Clean Tech Breakfast Series entitled Transforming Waste into Energy. A summary of this program is:

New energy solutions are being discovered and refined to overcome the budget contraints of high oil prices and mitigate the environmental impacts of carbon waste. Something that does not get a lot of headlines is utilizing existing consumer waste and transforming it into energy. We want to highlight its significance internationally, and potentially discuss why it is an under-utilized resource in the United States. Our panel discussion will include topics addressing:

  • Emerging trends in this industry, staying away from biofuels and focusing more on consumer and carbon waste
  • Technology needs and promise in sorting, conversion, and transformation of waste into energy and fuel needs
  • Product cycle issues including Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), producer responsibilities, and zero waste trends

This program will include the following panelists:

  • Mark Bowles, ecoATM
  • Mike Jackson, The Westly Group
  • Patrick Mathews, Salinas Valley Solid Waste Authority

This program will be held from 8:00 – 10:00 am at SAP, Building 1, 3410 Hillview Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304.  Thanks to our friends at SVForum, readers of Green VC can receive a $5 discount from the non-member registration price for this event.  To receive the discount, please use code "CLEAN05" when registering online.
