EDITOR'S NOTE: The symposium on Materials and Critical Societal Issues was held during the Materials Science & Technology 2004 conference in New Orleans, Louisiana in September 2004. The speakers' slides from several of the presentations were collected and converted to into portable document format (PDF) files, and a video presentation of "Material Engineering Challenges for the Society of Tomorrow: Housing, Transportation, Health, and Food Delivery Needs", is available for viewing as part of this month's JOM-e.
David Spencer has played an industry leadership role in recycling of municipal solid waste, plastics, glass, paper, and metals for more than 35 years.

Currently, he is chief executive officer of wTe® Corporation which owns and operates various recycling facilities for metals and plastics. One of those facilities is wTe Recycling, one of New England’s three major automobile shredder operations.

His latest activities involve high-speed optoelectronic sorting of metals by alloy type at high speed. In his presentation, Spencer provides a business and technology perspective on recycling, particularly recycling of household waste, metals, and plastics.
