UW-Green Bay’s partnership with Chile’s Universidad del Desarrollo took another step forward earlier this spring with a visit to Green Bay by about 15 Chilean master’s degree students and faculty in sustainability management and industrial engineering. Hosted by Prof. John Katers of Natural and Applied Sciences, the delegation attended the Heating the Midwest conference and toured green companies including FEECO, ENCAP, the Green Bay municipal wastewater plant, and others. Their Chile-to-Wisconsin trip followed a 2013 visit to Santiago by a UW-Green Bay delegation led by Katers, who earned a Fulbright Specialist position for the purpose of pursuing an ongoing partnership on topics of sustainability, pollution control and waste management. Sorry we didn’t post all this earlier, but we have more including a link to the Chilean students’ short video recap of the trip, photos, and a Santiago newspaper article.
