Webinar: Introduction to SWEET – Solid Waste Emissions Estimation Tool

24 October, 2017
15:00 CEST (GMT+2)
Online event

SWEET is a new tool designed to quantify emissions of methane, black carbon, and other pollutants from a range of sources in the municipal solid waste sector, including landfills, waste collection fleets, and garbage burning. The tool assists solid waste managers in establishing and analyzing baseline emissions and evaluating alternative future scenarios (e.g., upgrading an open dump to a managed dumpsite, or transitioning from diesel-based collection vehicles to ones that use compressed natural gas). The tool was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on behalf of the Waste Initiative, with support from Abt Associates and SCS Engineers. Webinar participants will learn about the tool’s purpose, design, and function. They will also receive information on how to access the tool. 

The webinar will be led by Joe Donahue from Abt Associates, a contractor for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Register for this webinar by 22nd October. Please note participation is free of cost, however, places are limited, so register early to participate!
