Believe in Ohio, a free program from The Ohio Academy of Science that helps students prepare for the future, has published a video in which Dr. Regan Silvestri, Professor of chemistry at Lorain County Community College presents his experiences of implementing landfill gas to energy projects in Kazakhstan
Working as volunteer service assignment in the United States Peace Corps as a visiting professor of environmental science in the Republic of Kazakhstan where he lived and worked for four years, and currently works on implementing waste-to-energy strategies in Kazakhstan.
Silvestri heighted a number of waste management practices in the country whereby waste is dumped in non-sanitary ‘landfill’ sites and frequently burned.
He also explained how he applied math and computers to calculate the GHG emission savings based on the amount of waste entering the site, its composition and its decomposition rates.
The presentation can be viewed below.
