Reducing Contamination through Community Education

WIRMC – Wisconsin Integrated Resource Management Conference 2022, Green Bay

February 23, 2022

SCS Engineers is again a Silver Sponsor of the 2022 Wisconsin Integrated Resource Management Conference (WIRMC) to be held February 23-25, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Green Bay.

The conference will feature workshops and numerous sessions on sustainability and resource management practices, including the following by SCS professionals:

Chris Jimieson will co-present on “Reducing Contamination and Increasing Participation Through Community Education” (Track Session IV, Friday, 9:00 am)

Tony Kriel and Mark Huber will discuss “Solar on Landfills” (Track Session V, Friday, 10:30 am). Solar energy is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy sources in the U.S. and worldwide. With rapidly declining solar panel costs, private sector interest, and public sector incentives, the search for potential solar development sites grows every year. More and more often, closed landfills are under consideration for utility-scale solar energy facilities. In their presentation, Tony and Mark will discuss evaluating landfills for solar development potential and present a case study on one of Wisconsin’s largest solar development projects located on a landfill.

This statewide conference is jointly hosted by the Associated Recyclers of Wisconsin (AROW), the SWANA Badger Chapter, Wisconsin Counties Solid Waste Management Association (WCSWMA), and is coordinated by Recycling Connections.

The conference will also include a field trip to two state-of-the-art paper mills reclaiming recycling fibers and producing new products, networking opportunities, and an exhibitors hall in addition to the technical tracks.
