The former technical division known as the Solid Waste Processing Division has voted to change its name to the Materials And Energy Recovery Division, or the "MER Division of ASME." The new Name was approved unanimously by the 6 member division Executive Committee on October 22, 2009.

"Through my efforts on a FIRST team I was able to
