The International Solid Waste Management Association will run a week-long course for waste-to-energy professionals designed to teach "Best Available Techniques" in the sector. The study tour will be led by the charismatic expert Dr. Franz Neubacher.

This study tour will consist of five intensive waste-to-energy seminars and visits to seven fully operational plants in Austria. There are three main areas of professional learning offered by this unique study tour:

1) Quality seminars will be given every morning on waste management, environmental policy and engineering.
2) There will be seven visits to waste treatment facilities representing "Best Available Techniques" including discussions with operators, government inspectors and reputable suppliers.
3) There will be discussions with political and environmental experts on the control of hazardous waste treatment and waste incineration plants as well as on the consensus process (typical "LULU" projects = "locally unwanted land use" and "NIMBY" reactions = "not in my backyard".)
