Penton Waste Industry Group Launches Strategic Business Initiative to Accelerate Organic Waste Management Solutions

Centerpiece is wide-ranging content partnership with former US Composting Council leader, Dr. Stuart Buckner

STAMFORD, CT/November 27, 2012 — In response to rising public and private-sector demand for more sustainable management of organic waste, Penton's Waste Industry Group today announced a strategic business initiative to bring new information, insights and thought-leadership to this fast-growing global market segment.

The centerpiece of the initiative is an exclusive partnership with former US Composting Council Executive Director, Dr. Stuart Buckner, to create original content, promote professional education and lead a new industry conversation about innovation and opportunities to responsibly manage organics residuals.

Penton's Waste Industry Group is a network of business information services that includes WasteExpo, North America's largest solid waste and recycling tradeshow, and WasteAge/waste360.com, the online hub for the $75 billion solid waste industry.

Dr. Buckner, who now heads Buckner Environmental Associates, will work with the Waste Age/waste360.com editorial staff to expand conference program workshops at the upcoming WasteExpo 2013 in New Orleans. He'll also produce a quarterly webcast and bi-monthly articles for Waste Age/waste360.com.

"From waste handlers and municipalities to business owners and environmentalists, the effective management of organic waste is rapidly becoming a major industrial issue," said Waste Age/waste360.com Content Director and Editor, Steven Averett. "The ongoing debate over how best to handle this material, be it through composting, anaerobic digestion or disposal in gas-to-energy landfills, will be a defining issue for the industry in the coming years. Our work with Dr. Buckner will frame the debate."

Waste Industry Group Managing Director, Rita Ugianskis noted the initiative adds a significant new leadership channel to the group's business.

"Now solid waste and organics professionals can gain the high-level education, training, equipment and product solutions and networking access they need across our entire service portfolio," said Ugianskis. "particularly at WasteExpo, which, beginning at our 2013 show in New Orleans, promises to become a one-stop event for the organics industry, too."

"I'm excited to work with Penton's Waste Industry Group on this leadership initiative," said Dr. Buckner. "Our unique partnership will extend the reach of my life's work in composting and organics management to help more waste industry professionals better understand this critical area of our industry."
