WCEE’s Lunch & Learn Series presents
Waste to Fuels: Is One Person’s Trash, Another’s Treasure?

Pernille Hager, President, Hager Ernst LLC

Substantial organic waste streams and recycled products (e.g. food scraps, manures, recycled fats oils & grease [FOG],) are produced within our urban and rural areas. These waste streams are already being converted to renewable energy, transportation fuels, and bio-products – and they have tremendous potential for growth.
Please join us on May 4 to learn how companies are working to convert waste to fuels, what roadblocks they are encountering, what the policy landscape looks like, and what the future holds for this industry.
