CALM Initiative Members,
As mentioned by the Energy Production Infrastructure Center (EPIC) Director, Dr. Mike Mazzola the CALM Initiative has left UNC Charlotte to form a private, industry partner-centered organization focused on coal ash, industrial waste management and wastewater treatment from energy production. This transition was completed effective, January 1, 2018 and the CALM Initiative is an industry consortium located at the PORTAL Building near UNC Charlotte.
As a privately funded, industry consortium the CALM Initiative will continue to focus on developing safe, environmentally responsible, technically sound and cost-effective technologies for containment and/or remediation of coal ash and other industrial waste materials. The CALM Initiative will continue to work with UNC Charlotte EPIC and other respected applied research organizations, while serving the needs of its industry and citizens interested in learning about what it takes produce clean, cost effective and environmentally responsible industrial waste management.
Since its beginning, the CALM Initiative has been a respected technical resource for companies and individuals who are looking for straightforward answers and practical solutions for dealing with coal ash and other industrial waste materials. For those interested in more information feel free to contact the CALM Initiative with ideas about applied research demonstration projects.
