About the Topic:
In 2014, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted the Roadmap to a Sustainable Waste Management Future, a long term guiding document to phase out reliance on landfills for the disposal of municipal solid waste.  Integral to achieving the long term goals of the Roadmap are conversion technologies, which utilize thermal, chemical or biological processes to convert waste into products or fuels without combustion.  Coby Skye will provide a presentation on the Roadmap, the state of conversion technologies, and the future of solid waste management in Los Angeles County.
