Chinese Environmental Protection Agenecy visits EEC|CCNY

The US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) organized a visit of the Chinese Environmental Protection Agency to EEC|CCNY to learn more about WTE in the US and WTE opportunities that could be applied to projects in China. Professor Castaldi and Associate Director Demetra Tsiamis provided a two-hour presentation that was followed by questions and answers. There were nearly 25 representatives from the Chinese delegation that led to some lively discussion related to the benefits of appropriately engineered and sited thermal conversion facilities. It was apparent that the Chinese officials were well informed but still has some dated information regarding WTE performance.   Both Castaldi and Tsiamis thought the meeting was productive and well-appreciated by the Chinese Delegation and were honored by their presence. This was the 3rd visit to EEC|CCNY from the IVLP which is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program. EEC|CCNY looks forward to the next visit.
