SWANA Remembers Konrad Fichtner

Donald R. Rice

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.
