Solid Waste:

From 1978 to 1995, John Norton was variously the Plant Engineer, and Director for the Montgomery County Solid Waste Department where he was responsible for strategic operational engineering and management of the large (1000 TPD) metropolitan solid waste disposal program. During this time, Norton, and his staff of engineers and managers, developed a complete design for a large municipal incineration system with energy recovery, built that system, and operated it for 8 years. Specifications for this system can be seen here.

Norton has been consulting in solid waste management and recycling for over 30 years, helping corporations and governments all over the world with planning, design, operations, and management of their facilities. Some of the more recent projects include:

NEWS RELEASE, June 15, 2008

John Norton Selected National Chairman of the ASME SWPD. (Recently renamed Materials and Energy Recovery Division, "MER").

New York B At their recent annual meeting in Philadelphia, PA, the Materials and Energy Recovery Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers announced that John Norton has been selected Chairman of their technical division.

The announcement was made at the luncheon on the first day of the 16th Annual North American Waste to Energy Conference, held this year in Philadelphia, May 19 B May 21, 2008. The North American Waste to Energy Conference ("NAWTEC") is jointly sponsored by the ASME MER, the Solid Waste Association of North America ("SWANA"), and the Integrated Waste Services Association ("IWSA").

The ASME MER is generally recognized as the premier technical group in the United States on the subject of solid waste management and waste-to-energy.

Norton is the owner of the Norton Engineering Company in Dayton, Ohio, which specializes in civil engineering, environmental matters, and green energy. Norton was the Director of the Montgomery County Solid Waste Management Program from 1978 to 1992, a period when the region depended largely upon the use of the two 750 TPD incineration plants, one of which had a 6 Megawatt electrical generator and sold power to DP&L, the regional electrical utility.

About the ASME Materials and Energy Recovery Division:

The Materials and Energy Recovery Division (MER) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a nonprofit organization that is one of the most active divisions within ASME. The objective of the MER is to collect, correlate and disseminate accurate information on all aspects of the solid waste processing industry. The transfer of information is done through conferences with peer-reviewed papers, facility tours, and seminars. The solid waste management systems reviewed by the division include thermal conversion, resource recovery and recycling, energy recovery from the combustion of solid waste as well as landfill gas, and the training of operators for these facilities.
