ReImagine Appalachia held another installment of the “Make it in Appalachia” series!

We hosted a “listen and learn” session on zero waste manufacturing (circular manufacturing, decarbonization, etc.) on Thursday, December 1st at 3pm.  The first half hour we heard from a panel of experts who will be responded to a handful of questions, and the second half we opened to discussion. 

The questions we focused on this session: 

  1. What does “zero waste manufacturing” mean to you? 
  2. Why does it matter?
  3. How do we get there? 
  4. Is there a role for public policy?

This panel was moderated by Patricia DeMarco, Ph.D. of Forest Hills Borough Council.

Other speakers included:

  • Kristen Olmi, Chief Economic Development Strategist at KO Consulting, LLC
  • Joanne Martin, ReImagine Beaver County
  • Graeme Miller, Assistant Director at U.S. Department of Energy’s Midwest CHP Technical Assistance Partnership
  • Christina Cilento, Associate Policy Fellow at the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions
