EREF Releases Targeted Request for Sustainable Solid Waste Research Proposals

The Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF), one of the largest sources of funding for solid waste research in the U.S., has unveiled a targeted request for sustainable solid waste research proposals.  In late 2010, EREF Board of Directors made a decision to ensure research funded in the future reflected EREF’s long-term strategic research plan to address all areas of integrated solid waste management, with a strong focus towards research that increased sustainable solid waste management practices. Sustainability, as it relates to solid waste management, is a focus on utilizing waste as a resource. “While EREF has always supported research and educational initiatives in all areas of solid waste, this targeted RFP exemplifies EREF’s commitment to funding cutting edge research on next-generation technologies to manage discarded materials,” noted Jim Dowland, Waste Management’s Vice President of Disposal Operations and chair of the EREF Board’s Research Project Committee.
