    Special North America Workshop in 2015:

    For participants coming from North America, there will be a special complimentary workshop from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on May 7, 2015.  This workshop will be tailored for and limited to attendees from North America, and will be facilitated by John Carlton, P.E., BCEE, Senior Vice President of GBB and renowned MBT expert Dr. Matthias Kuehle-Weidemeier, CEO of the Germany-based waste treatment specialist Wasteconsult International, and supported by Michael Balhar, CEO of ASA GmbH.  The workshop will feature a facilitated discussion on the following topics:

    • The development of modern MBT systems and how they can reduce landfill input and aftercare costs;
    • Insight into commercial MBT systems in Europe and how these systems could work in North America;
    • Practical experience and lessons learned from operating MBT systems in Europe; and
    • Implementing MBT processing as part of a North American integrated solid waste management system.

    In addition, we have reserved time to discuss your specific operating systems or solid waste management strategies and brainstorm together the best way to incorporate MBT into your current or future plans. After attending this workshop, you’ll come away with the latest information on MBT and how it could play a role in helping you achieve your solid waste management goals.
