The 1980s saw a boom in waste-to-energy facilities in the United States, and the 2010s are seeing a similar uptick in conversion technology development. Although the basic technologies may differ, the risk analysis for both projects are very similar. This webinar will take the lessons learned from the last boom, and apply them to the latest trends in order to learn from past mistakes and successes.
Join Constance Hornig in recalling how risks have been allocated between the municipal entities that are the “anchor tenant” of WTE projects, and the contractors and investors who build and fund them. These risks include technology, permitting, rates of foreign exchange, changes in air emissions regulations, and waste stream commitments (quantity-and-quality). All of which have been dealt with extensively in regards to WTE, and which is shared with today’s conversion technology projects.
