Barry Penner, B.C.’s Minister of Environment, will address delegates to a greenhouse gas workshop being present by the B.C. Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA).

The workshop “GHG from A to Z” is the wrap up event to the Chapter’s First Annual Training Conference, Friday, May 9, 2008 at the Harbor Towers Hotel.

The workshop is considered a “must attend” for managers, supervisors, senior operators and regulators responsible for solid waste management planning in a new carbon neutral environment. The workshop features 14 of the region’s most knowledgeable professionals in the field of GHG and solid waste management making presentations throughout the day.

A complete schedule is available at www.swanabc.org

The goal of the workshop is to highlight a range of topics including:

The Greenhouse Gas issues most relevant to the solid waste industry

Discussion on everything from GHG 101 issues to registries, exchanges and renewable energy credits

Climate change and its environmental impacts, how solid waste practices contribute to the generation of GHGs, and methods for their reduction

Sources of GHG emissions, important GHG terms, global efforts to control GHG, and the climate action efforts under way

Tickets to the day long workshop, or any registrations to SWANA training courses at the Conference, are available through SWANA BC Chapter at www.swanabc.org by downloadable PDF faxback form, or as on-line booking through a link to CivicInfo BC.
