TUESDAY TECH TALKS
Members-only expert-led online meetups on topics of timely interest
Join Stantec's Jake Riley to discover and disucss eDNA. Environmental DNA (eDNA) is DNA that is naturally shed by organisms into their environment, such as streams, rivers, oceans, soils, even in fecal matter. eDNA can be used as a tool to evaluate effluent effects of wastewater treatment processes, assess management effects on biota, or delineate fish-bearing streams. By sampling the habitat in which species live, we can detect their presence without having to capture, handle, or even see the organisms we are looking for.
This is a FREE E2Tech Member event. We look forward to see you there!

As of August 10, the SBA has started to accept PPP forgiveness applications. Many recipients of PPP funding have taken a look at the forgiveness application and are realizing that this is far more complex than the loan application they grappled with earlier. Join us for a discussion on ways to simplify your process.
This webinar is brought to you by the Maine State Chamber of Commerce.

Solid Waste Disposal and Recycling in Maine
Maine’s solid waste disposal system is a patchwork quilt built from the ground-up. This system consists of public and private municipal and regional landfills, waste-to-energy incinerators, solid waste processing and recycling facilities, organics management operations, and your local transfer station. All of these entities must respond to market swings worldwide, nationally, and within the system as well as to State and federal laws and regulations.
But why has solid waste been in the news lately? Problems with crashing recycling markets are just one part of the story. The recent closure of Coastal Resources of Maine’s Fiberight anaerobic digester in Hampden has diverted municipal solid waste from 115 municipalities to the Waste Management Crossroads landfill in Norridgewock and to the PERC waste-to-energy facility in Orrington. The municipal solid waste system is still trying to reach equilibrium absorbing waste that formerly had been handled at the now-closed MERC waste-to-energy facility in Biddeford. And the State is encouraging and funding waste diversion projects to increase recycling and composting infrastructure.
Attend “E2Tech Talks Trash,” and learn what happens after you set that bag at the curb. Speakers will describe the various elements of the solid waste system and challenges in Maine and will discuss the policy directions and technologies that affect them now and in the future. Ample time for Q&A will be provided.

The Maine Climate Council is charged with developing a plan to meet state greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets that are now in law, including a gross 45% greenhouse gas emissions reduction below 1990 levels by 2030 and at least 80% by 2050.
Starting with an introduction & overview of energy use by sector, our panel of experts will explore challenges for meeting these targets. What combination of strategies could work, and what business opportunities should emerge? How have other states proceeded? What is the baseline and how will progress be tracked? As the Maine Climate Council begins work on a blueprint for action, this panel will look at the scope of their undertaking, focusing in this initial forum on the transportation & heating sectors. It is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day - join us!

Achieving the emissions reductions goals of the Maine Climate Council hinges on dramatically reducing reliance on fossil fuels -- not just for home heating, but in all sectors of the Maine economy. It relies on a large-scale shift from fossil fuels to an expanded electricity grid powered mainly by new renewables. Panelists, who are experts in the field with both supporting and opposing viewpoints, will lay out what is needed in terms of investment and structure, including solar, wind, energy storage development, as well as the accompanying policy measures required, to achieve the enacted goals.
Join E2Tech for an in-depth, detailed exploration of possible pathways to a fossil fuel free economy and whether the approach is reasonable, achievable and economical. Ample time for audience Q&A will be included.
