Let's Talk Trash

Next week I will be joining many of my fellow translators and interpreters at the ATA Annual Conference in San Diego. After six years of sitting in the audience, I am looking forward to holding a presentation and sharing some of the knowledge I have gathered over the years. My session, entitled Let's Talk Trash, will take place from 10am to 11am on Saturday under the Science and Technology track.

Here is the abstract:

As the world starts to run short on raw materials and energy costs spiral higher, industry and policy-makers are increasingly looking to waste to bridge the gap. This presentation will touch upon all major waste management technologies from landfilling to incineration, mechanical biological treatment to composting, and recycling. It will also cover gray areas: When does a product become a waste and when does a recycled waste become a secondary raw material? The presentation will also draw comparisons between the approaches taken in the US, Europe and a developing country.
