Abstract : In support of Task No. 0818, Army Net Zero Prove-Out, the National Defense Center for Energy and Environment (NDCEE), operated by Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), was tasked to provide the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Energy & Sustainability (ODASA[E&S]) outreach material consisting of Net Zero Waste Best Practices. Information required to develop these Best Practices was collected over the course of this Task 818 and the NDCEE leveraged previous work with the NZ Waste Pilot Installations under Task 0755 and Material Flow Analyses and Waste Characterization activities under Task 774. During the Period of Performance (POP) of T-0755 and since the commencement of this Task, monthly collaboration calls have been held between the Army Net Zero Waste Team leaders, external resources, NDCEE and the Army Net Zero Waste Pilot Installations (recently, participation has expanded beyond the pilot installations). These monthly calls accounted for the majority of Best Practices collected and were also included in the NZ Implementation Guide. The enclosed brochure found at Appendix A is intended to facilitate a comprehensive perspective for the institutionalization of NZ across the Army and aid in the transition of the NZ Pilot Installation Initiative concepts to a wider Army audience. Appendix B is a text version of the brochure to facilitate review.
