Scott and Coleen Stevens Chair in Engineering Sustainability and Associate Professor John D. Atkinson, PhD will speak at The SUNY Distinguished Academy's Sustainability of Energy Resources Webinar on Friday, October 29 at 2:00 p.m.
The U.S. differs from other developed nations in its reliance on landfills. In a world challenged by climate change and a growing quantity of waste, a proactive approach to waste management is needed. This talk will describe U.S. resistance to waste-to-energy and highlight how greenhouse gas modeling suggests a need for change.
The webinar centers on sustainability issues regarding sources, storage and distribution of energy. Featured speakers include SUNY Distinguished faculty and a Nobel Laureate.
