Symposium Scope

This international symposium will focus on issues, as well as recent advances, in extraction and processing as applied to the treatment and minimization of wastes.

A reception will be held on Sunday afternoon, October 27, 1996. The plenary session will be held on Monday morning, October 28, 1996 followed by technical sessions from Monday afternoon to Wednesday afternoon.

Often the most difficult problems associated with the treatment of wastes are regulatory issues and the public perception of the application of technology.

The Plenary Session will examine current issues related to the processing and minimization of wastes from the perspective of the federal government, industry, the environmental community, and the media.

This symposium will bring together a diverse group of researchers, policy makers, regulators, manufacturers, and other interested groups to address their common interests in waste treatment and minimization. A published proceedings volume will be available at the symposium.
