Upcoming Technical Seminars at EWMCE
The EWMCE's technical seminars bring together a wealth of knowledge from waste management leaders. Together, viable waste management practices and solutions are sought and discovered. Technical seminars encourage a community of learning that support sustainability and innovation.
Technical seminars showcase emerging developments in waste management practice, research and technology, and are selected to engage a wide waste management audience. Seminar attendees range from professionals and practitioners to researchers and students, and from technicians and engineers to managers, consultants, and policy makers. Seminars provide a rich forum for dialogue and shared understanding.

Organic Waste Treatment Technology for the Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Sectors
June 4, 2012
The Institutional, Commercial, and Industrial (ICI)
sectors generate about 40% of the solid waste in Alberta.
Very few organizations within the ICI sectors have
instituted organic waste recycling. Waste composition
studies have found that 50% of the landfill-bound waste
in the ICI sectors is biodegradable organic material such
as food waste, soiled fibre, and yard and garden waste.
This seminar showcased the technologies available to recover the organic fraction of the ICI waste stream.
