Recovering Energy From Waste: An Environmental Dilemma

April 1, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As cities grow and demands on our time increase, invariably, we opt for convenience when available. This usually means an increase in single use disposable items such as prepared food containers, packaged chemical cleaning solutions and other such functional products. Most of our materials truthfully can’t be recycled and without a doubt, a great deal ends up in the great Pacific garbage patch as shipping containers fall off ships with our plastic “recycling” bound for China.


Many countries in the world have already led the way with recovering energy from waste.  This however, doesn’t come without its critics since there will be an inevitable increase in local emissions.

Why Should I Care? has assembled a panel to discuss the pros and cons of treating our garbage as an energy source within the city.  Enwave’s CEO Dennis Fotinos, Kathleen Reil, former chair of the RWWG (Residual Waste Working Group), and Rob McLeese, Director of the Association of Power Producers of Ontario, will be joining us on April 1 at our new uptown location at the Rose and Crown.

Join us April 1, at the Rose and Crown (2335 Yonge St) to ask your questions and share your thoughts on recovering energy from waste.  As always, the event is free.  Doors open at 7:00pm for informal networking and we will get the discussion underway by 7:30pm.


Please RSVP to let us know you are joining us.
