Houston CleanTech Trek (February 20-21, 2020)

Six CTG members drove to Houston for an Houston alumni happy hour at Weights & measures on Thursday night. Friday during the day we visited Waste Management Materials Recovery Facility, Waste Management HQ, EDP Renewables Office, and NRG Energy.

Paul Peterson (MBA 2021) said of the trip: “Planning and going on the McCombs CleanTech Group trek to Houston was a wonderful networking and educational experience for my classmates and me. We were able to tour both a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and the corporate headquarters of Waste Management, seeing recycling in action and learning about new company initiatives. Then we got a deep dive into the renewable energy development and operations in a city known more for oil and gas. Our trek hosts were extremely accommodating and brought a full entourage of functional roles to our tours so we could ask questions covering the full gambit of their operations and strategy.”
