With sadness, SWANA shares that Konrad Fichtner of Vancouver, British Columbia, passed away in July, 2019.
He was one of Canada’s foremost Waste Management experts with a particularly deep knowledge of Waste-to-Energy issues. He was very passionate about myth-busting and educating people on the science behind waste-to-energy. His work moved many new projects forward and kept many others safely operating in compliance with the strictest regulations. In addition to being an industry leader, he was also a really great guy. He shared his knowledge freely and enjoyed collaborating with other experts and mentoring young professionals. He will be greatly missed as a person and as a uniquely capable waste professional.
