Abstract:

In 2011, the U.S. Army implemented the Net Zero Initiative, which includes Net Zero Energy, Net Zero Water, and Net Zero Waste NZW. A NZW installation is an installation that reduces, reuses, and recovers waste streams by converting them to resource value without using a landfill. To assist in that effort, this work reviewed the policies and initiatives aimed at reduction waste generation, discussed the challenges on the implementation of improvement efforts, and outlined existing research and operational needs to support more efficient operations and the achievement of Net Zero goals.
