The importance of the topics illustrated to the audience and industry in this presentation will become self evident as to the industry’s future. In light of the events of September 11, 2001; the volatility of the middle eastern oil interests; and initiatives regarding national security and homeland defense, it would appear that any energy technology that can reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil should be considered a national strategic asset. As such, one could assert that today’s municipal waste combustors that provide electrical capacity and/or steam capacity (i.e. waste-to-energy facilities) are a strategic asset since they reduce our dependence on foreign oil and convert “garbage” into a resource.
