The Engineering Society of Detroit continues its commitment to finding ways to nurturing and promoting the energy industry in the State of Michigan. In support of that effort ESD will hold two important conferences in the next two months: Solid Waste Technical Conference on April 12 and the ESD/DTE Energy Conference on May 10.

In its 21st year, and in partnership with the Michigan Waste Industries Association, the Solid Waste Technical Conference will feature keynote speaker, Carl Rush, vice president of organic growth at Waste Management Inc., who will discuss “Innovations and Developments in Solid Waste Management.” In addition, the conference will feature expert speakers and an important list of relevant topics, including the future of solid waste management in the U.S.; solid waste policy issues; new technologies; regulatory updates; and more.

Cost to attend the 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. event is $150 for MWIA and ESD members; $185 for non-members; $35 for students; and $100 for government employees. There will also be an optional training day on Monday, April 11. The cost for ESD/MWIA/MDEQ members is $225; non-members $300. The conference will be held at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in East Lansing.

Less than one month following the Solid Waste Conference, ESD will hold its successful Energy Conference & Exhibition on May 10, in partnership with DTE Energy. The event will take place at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.

Hailed as one of Michigan’s “largest energy conference of its kind,” the event draws an annual crowd of more than 800 and features exhibitors with the latest products and information about energy and energy efficiency, as well as educational track sessions and an afternoon executive session with some of the industry’s Who’s Who.

The cost to attend is $65 for ESD members, $85 for non-members, or pay $139 to become a member of ESD and attend free, as well as receive a free one-year subscription to Crain’s Detroit Business.
