Description

Learn How to Harness Electrical Energy from Trash

In cooperation with the Student Global Ambassador Program (SGAP) and Covanta Energy

High School students visit the Covanta Energy from Waste (EfW) facility and learn how municipal waste and trash is processed to yield electrical energy. Tour is tailored for STEM and AP Environmental students and teachers. Prior to the 40 minute walking tour, there is a brief presentation about the Sustainable Development Goals and Renewable Energy. Finally, there will be an overview of the EfW process. After the tour, there is a brief wrap-up, question and answer session, and a take-home case study. To learn more, visit sgapleaders.org

Students:

  • Meet with environmental engineers and learn about their jobs and career paths
  • Learn about possible internships with Covanta Energy
  • Discuss in small groups how EfW compares with other renewable energy options

All tour guides are Covanta environmental engineers. For your safety, all participants must wear long sleeve shirts, long ankle length pants with socks, and closed-toe flat shoes. Students bring their bag lunches.
