Hi Group,

 

RECYC-QUÉBEC, in partnership with the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs (MDDEP), the Ministère du Développement économique, de l’Innovation et de l’Exportation (MDEIE) and Réseau environnement, is organizing an information and discussion day on waste recovery, to be held on Tuesday, May 27, 2008, at the Hôtel des Seigneurs in St-Hyacinthe.

 

The day is specifically intended as an opportunity to discuss issues regarding waste recovery and its applications in Québec, and to provide information on the different waste management options.

 

The first part of the day will be essentially devoted to nationally and internationally renowned speakers who will look at issues and future perspectives related to waste recovery technologies and current trends around the world. A discussion panel will be held in the afternoon to give participants the opportunity to discuss the issue, which affects all Quebecers.
