Participates in Department of Commerce Trade Mission as Company’s first International Project is Underway

 March 1, 2014 – Zero Waste Energy (ZWE) is participating in the Department of Commerce’s trade mission to the Middle East March 4-18th, led by Secretary Penny Pritzker. The trade mission is specifically focused on export opportunities for U.S. businesses in the infrastructure sector in areas such as project management and engineering (including construction, architecture and design), renewable energy (solar, wind, waste-to-energy), smart grid and energy efficiency, and environmental technologies (including water/wastewater, air pollution control, and waste management). The delegation will visit the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and Qatar. Of the 80 companies that applied, ZWE was one of only 21 selected to take part.

“As the country’s Chief Commercial Advocate, a key part of my job is to promote trade and investment and connect U.S. businesses with potential customers across the globe. The three countries we are visiting on our trade mission to the Gulf Region are among the top 50 export markets for the United States.“

ZWE’s participation in this trade mission takes place as the company has begun work on its first international project in Doha, Qatar. Along with the Qatar-based company, Alwaseeta, ZWE will be designing and implementing a recycling program for the country.
