On November 18, 2002, the New York Academy of Sciences will host a panel of experts to discuss and compare the environmental, public health and economic impacts of current waste-to-energy technology to landfilling.
The issue derives from the 2001 closure of the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island and New York City’s growing dependence on other states for the disposal of over three million tons of municipal solid waste annually and increasing costs.
The NY Academy of Sciences is a nonprofit organization of more than 23,000 members worldwide committed to service to science, technology, and society.
