From Waste to Value

Vendors, Buyers, Energy Consumers Meet at the EBW Expo & Conference in Pittsburgh, PA

While many still regard waste as a liability, an increasing number of proponents of clean, domestically available fuels see it as an asset. Energy recovery from waste can help reduce the dependence on oil imports and protect the environment. At America's first international exhibition and conference on "energy from biomass and waste", EBW, manufacturers of environmental technology and stakeholders from waste management, municipalities, energy-intensive industries, and the farm economy meet to discuss the value of waste. The EBW Expo & Conference will be held on September 25-27, 2007 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Exhibit Hall B, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


Waste-to-energy facilities and landfill-gas-recovery sites are what first comes to mind, but there are more options for waste as a resource: biofuels from plastics waste; so-called refuse-derived fuels made from residential waste and used to substitute coal in power plants; bioenergy from wastewater; and biogas from cow manure and chicken litter for heat and power generation. The "Waste to Value" session of the EBW Conference focuses on available technologies, best-practice reports, financing, market trends, and legislative issues.

EBW's mission is to make attendance of the expo and conference affordable for a wide range of stakeholders. Thanks to the support of sponsors like Allied Waste and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, entrance fees can be kept at only $50, with tickets giving unlimited admission to the technology exhibition and all conference sessions.

Further sponsors of the EBW Expo & Conference include: Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc.; The Pennsylvania State University; Robert-James Sales, Inc.; TowPath Renewables; and The West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund.

Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
