Modern industrial societies generate ever-increasing amounts of garbage, creating environmental, policy, and fiscal challenges. The German Federal Republic’s densely populated cities have experimented with multiple solutions, including landfills, incineration, composting, and recycling. Come hear Dr. Köster’s historical account of a half century’s waste management experiences in Germany.
Roman Köster is a specialist in modern environmental, economic and business history. He is a member of the Institute for Economic, Social, and Technology History at the University of the Bundeswehr, Munich.
