Jeremy Morris, Ph.D., P.E.

Jeremey Morris is a Principal Engineer and internationally recognized subject matter expert based in Maryland with more than 18 years of experience in the waste management and renewable energy sectors. While primarily engaged on North American projects, his international experience extends to Latin America, Europe, and Africa.

Jeremy provides strategic advisory services on solid waste planning, including market valuations and feasibility analyses of alternative waste conversion technologies, and options for meeting waste diversion and recycling goals. He specializes in feasibility analyses for project development, research reports, guidance manuals, planning, and public communication, and has burgeoning experience with litigation support. Jeremy has helped dozens of private and public clients navigate the project development lifecycle for new and expanded waste management facilities, providing services from pre-development planning and impact assessment through engineering design and permitting, bidding and procurement, construction, operation, compliance, closure, and post-closure. His technical background extends to the field of sustainable landfill management and post-closure care, for which he has published widely and served as lead investigator on several U.S. EPA research studies on long-term performance and regulation of waste management facilities.

A growing component of Jeremy's work is redevelopment of former landfills and brownfield sites as platforms for renewable energy (including solar, wind, and geothermal) for which he has performed a number of technical/financial feasibility studies and conceptual designs for project development. Jeremy has consulted on several projects related to biogas utilization for electricity generation and production of biofuels (renewable natural gas). He has helped municipalities develop greenhouse gas inventories and emission reduction plans, as well as quantify, register, and trade carbon offsets earned through emission control measures.

The author of more than 50 technical papers and a regular participant at national and international symposia, Jeremy is also actively engaged in teaching and speaking at meetings and workshops for regulatory and profession associations.  For the last several years, he has served on the Task Group on Sustainable Landfill Management for the International Waste Working Group (IWWG). The Task Group aims to provide definitions and criteria for landfill completion and the operational controls necessary to achieve a sustainable landfill.
