Circle Economy for Communities: Coffee with Andre Struker

May 20, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

This event is free, but we ask that you REGISTER to attend.

The circular economy is about closing resource loops, mimicking natural ecosystems in the way we organize our society and businesses. Andre Struker, Strategic Advisor to Amsterdam’s water utility Waternet, is coming to Pittsburgh to share his expertise on how the facility’s energy-from-waste ecosystem fits within the overall circular economy strategy in Amsterdam and how the utility is “mining for energy” in its goal to become climate neutral by 2020.

The circular economy can be applied to help communities minimize waste, maximize value creation, and generate new opportunity for prosperity. GTECH is hosting coffee with Andre Struker to explore how these innovative principles can be applied locally with businesses, community-based organizations and active citizens. During the coffee participants will have the opportunity to hear a presentation from Struker to dig deeper into the model and ask him questions to consider challenges and possible applications locally.

Thank you to our venue and coffee sponsors:
