The Los Angeles County Public Works Department will hold a Conversion Technology workshop on Thursday, September 23, 2010, from 8:30 A.M. – 12 P.M.. The workshop will provide cities, technology providers and trash operators with information regarding three County approved conversion technology demonstration projects that will turn non-recyclable waste into clean energy and encourage attendees to participate in future projects within L.A. County.
Conversion projects have the potential to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfills, create local green jobs, and produce renewable energy. While conversion technologies have been successfully implemented in Japan, Europe and Canada, the County’s demonstration projects will be among the first of their kind in the United States.
* Editors Note: If you are interested in conversion technology and cannot attend, join us via our webinar. Information on how to join us is listed at the bottom of the advisory.
