On October 7-8, the Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council hosted its 2010 Bi-Annual Meeting at Columbia University in the City of New York. There were 28 presentations and 15 posters in the meeting. In 2010, the Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council requested nominations of urban areas that are close to attaining the ideals of Sustainable Waste Management. The awards were given to the City of Vienna (Austria) for being one of the cleanest (as well as “most livable”!) cities in the world and to Lee County of the State of Florida (U.S.A.) for being one of the first urban areas in the U.S. to approach “zero waste” by minimizing landfilling.
