[GreenYes] Support request: Czech, Latin American officials to learn about waste technologies in US
Dear GRRN list:

Here is an email newsletter from a US government agency which promotes
exports of US goods. This week, it appears that they are working on the
waste industry, as they are helping Czech officials buy waste-to-energy
incinerators, and officials from various Latin American countries look into
unspecified waste technologies. It would be fabulous if some Zero Waste or
anti-incineration advocates in Boston, Houston and/or Las Vegas could try to
meet these foreign officials, both to debunk incineration and to talk to
them about alternatives. Is anyone interested in doing this?
