The biennial Global Waste Management Symposium will be held 22 – 24 June 2014 in Orlando Florida. GWMS 2014, organized by Penton, offers a strong international perspective on waste management best practices, research, construction, and new technologies. More than 100 presentations will be delivered over the three day event, covering topics such as capping and closure, waste cell design, and stormwater management.
The organizers have now published the extended abstracts as part of a “sneak peek” of the experts and detailed subjects that will be explored and shared with attendees.
A few highlights:
- Geosynthetics veteran Dhani Narejo will present on “Surface Flow and Leakage Hydraulics of Exposed Landfill Covers.”
- Tony Eith will present on “Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) Berms in Solid Waste Facility Design Applications.”
- Geosynthetic Liner CQA expert Abigail Beck will present on “Technologies for Reducing the Risk of Landfill Leakage”
