the 21st Century
by Nickolas J. Themelis
Director, Earth Engineering Center, Columbia University

Prof. Themelis and other researchers at Schools of Engineering and Public
Affairs of Columbia University have studied the means for managing municipal
and other solid wastes and have published widely on this subject. It is a
major problem that is faced not only by the rapidly growing cities of the
developing world but also by New York City that for several years has
transporting most of its municipal solid wastes to other states for
disposal. The speaker will examine the global as well as the national state
of solid wastes management. (www.columbia.edu./cu/earth).
