Raleigh, NC (October 28, 2014) – The Board of Directors of the Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF) is pleased to announce the award of three research grants for solid waste research.
EREF is the only private, grant making institution with a national and international scope whose sole mission is to support solid waste research and education initiatives. EREF’s research grants program is led by its Research Council, a body of volunteers consisting of technical experts in industry, academia and consulting. The work of the Council is guided by a long range strategic plan with the goal to achieve greater sustainability, good environmental stewardship, higher process efficiency and increased knowledge. Council recommended projects are then reviewed by EREF’s Board’s Projects Committee for a final review and funding allocation. Non-research oriented projects are reviewed and recommended to the Projects Committee by technical staff.
