    Orrick, Menlo Park

    Registration is closed for this event.

    As waste management has intensified the global environmental impact and creates financial costs, a perfect storm is created for technology innovation. SDForum is partnering with Orrick to bring you a dynamic discussion of emerging waste mitigation companies, socially responsible venture investment firms, and local public services as they address building sustainable and environmentally compatible products for full life cycle and highlight the lifecycle of consumer waste management, treatment, recovery and containment.

    Our panel discussion will include topics addressing:
    - Defining “waste” and the challenges around waste management and recycling?
    - Technology needs and promise in sorting, conversion, and transformation of waste into energy and fuel needs
    - Product cycle issues including Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), producer responsibilities, and zero waste trends

    Come join the discussion about innovative waste management solutions and support the emerging trend towards innovative and sustainable business practices.
