Miles Dyck, Assistant Professor, Department of Renewable Resources, Faculty of Agricultural, Life & Environmental Sciences, will present a seminar, “Energy Efficient Waste Management,” on 10 November 2011 as part of The School of Energy and the Environment (SEE) seminar series 2011-12.
This seminar will highlight two research programs currently conducted by my graduate students: 1) use of municipal waste water for irrigation of short rotation woody species for bioenergy; and 2) environmental risks associated with on-site wastewater treatment systems at a highway rest stop. With growing population pressures and increasingly rigorous environmental regulations, capital costs for wastewater treatment facilities are potentially prohibitive for non-urban areas. These two projects look at the risks and benefits associated with low-cost, on-site treatment of municipal waste waters.

Date and Time: Thursday, November 10, 2011 – 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM
