The Cost Effective and Sustainable Alternative to Incineration"

Presentation by Professor Paul Connett

House of Commons, Tuesday 2nd November, 6pm

 Professor Connett returns by popular demand, following his recent tour of Europe and talks to the United Nations on 'Zero Waste'.

He is a world expert on waste management issues, specialising in the dangers of waste incineration, and in safer and more sustainable non-burn alternatives.

The main objective is to raise awareness among parliamentarians/policy makers about the issues and arguments for 'zero waste' strategies, and highlight the problems associated with waste incineration. The event will follow a meeting the previous week between Prof. Connett and DEFRA civil servants.

Try asking nicely for a ticket for the above meeting, from: Gloucestershire Against Incinerators.
