The focus of the workshop was to develop a new framework to turn waste into resources underpinned by the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) principle, converting solid waste into energy intensive materials.

This is strategically creating a waste-to-resource framework initiative, forging international partnerships between the UK and the US around energy innovation and collaboration involving Argonne, AREC USA and AREC UK.

It was attended by 80 participants representing a range of key players in related industries and policy making organisations in order to transform US strategies and policies in dealing with waste – especially in creating a waste-to-resource framework.
