Dear Mr. Brown,
I am a researcher at Taiwan's Waste Exchange Information Center (WEIC) in Taiwan.
Ms. Smith recommended that I get in touch with you about membership in your working
Your organization's missions, major activities, and achievements
WEIC is a non-governmental, non-profit organization established as a subsidiary of
Union Chemical Laboratories, which is a part of the larger Industrial Technology
Research Institute, Hsinchu, Taiwan. We are currently involved in a long-term project
entitled the "Industrial Waste Minimization Information Service," which has already
been sponsored by the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) for more than three years.
The goal of this long-term project is to provide relevant information on the practice of
industrial waste minimization. This service is provided to the public free of charge.
Our major work includes the publication of a waste minimization bimonthly magazine,
the facilitation of waste exchange, and the transfer and dissemination of commercialized
waste minimization technologies. The experimental results generated from this project
have already proved most helpful in Taiwan's environmental protection efforts.
Enclosed please find a document that describes WEIC, Taiwan in greater detail.
We recognize that the continued success of our work depends on the open exchange of
related experiences with similar organizations. Please send a flyer and a membership
application at your earliest convenience.
