This will prove to be an interesting, if smallish, meeting. Try to 
make it! And participate. (And, it should end in time for the WBAI 
radio comedy night, which is walking distance from the Brooklyn Boro Hall.)

Brooklyn Solid Waste Advisory Board

MONDAY, March 3, 2014
6:30 pm
Brooklyn Borough Hall, 209 Joralemon Street

Our Borough President, Eric Adams, and Deputy Borough President, 
Diana Reyna, have been invited to the Brooklyn S.W.A.B. 
meeting.  Please join us to meet and greet them.

This month's S.W.A.B. meeting will be the venue for presentations on 
different technologies that use aerobic and anaerobic digestion to 
make compost.

Guest Speakers:

Gail Richardson, Executive Director of Solar CITIES Solutions, Inc., 
has been invited to share with us how her company plans to help 
developing countries use small-scale "biodigesters" to improve their 
environment, their access to energy and, also, the health of their 
populations.  Is it really possible for a biodigester to do all that?

Laura Rosenshine, member of the Manhattan SWAB and Project Manager 
for Global Enviro, has been invited to speak about Global Enviro, a 
Norwegian based company that produces systems that can process 300 to 
3,000 pounds of food scraps each day. What makes their systems unique 
and would they work for New York City?

Kendall Christiansen, long time member of Brooklyn SWAB, former Chair 
of the (former) Citywide Recycling Advisory Board and, senior 
consultant to InSinkErator, has also been invited. He will speak 
about his work promoting food waste disposers and the effective use 
of anaerobic digestion.

Can these two technologies be used together productively and economically?

Please join us for what promises to be an interesting and timely discussion.

Active participation in the Brooklyn S.W.A.B. is encouraged.

or Nancy Walby at (718) 258-2701
S.W.A.B.'s next meeting date:  Monday, April 7, 2014
