The Future of RCRA – Making the Business Case
October 26, 2016 | 1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act’s (RCRA) regulatory and enforcement programs have accomplished a great deal over the past forty years. At its 40th anniversary, the RCRA statute stands to achieve much more. Looking forward, real progress will be made through collaboration with states, local governments, industry, academia, and communities. How can we capture the accomplishments of the past and leverage these results into a new, innovative, and productive enterprise? As U.S. EPA fashions its approach to RCRA 2040, we gather a community of experienced practitioners to exchange ideas and shape the debate about the future of this important program.
Some highlights from the Summit agenda include:
- Kickoff Remarks: Agency Perspective — Mathy Stanislaus, Assistant Administrator, Office of Land and Emergency Management, U.S. EPA
- Panel One — Sustainable Materials Management: Lifecycle Approaches from Supply Chain Communication through Resource Recovery
- Panel Two — Sustainable Operations: Innovative Approaches to Everyday Business under RCRA
- Panel Three — Innovations in Corrective Action Closure: Adapting the Toolkit
The Summit was convened in partnership with the Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) and the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC).
