This global event brings together waste management companies, local government authorities, energy consultants and engineering experts from the UK and mainland Europe - all eager to discuss new business in this important growth market.
Day One – Economics, finance, business models
The first day of the conference begins with a keynote by CEWEP president and Indaver CEO, Paul De Bruycker. He will deliver an overview of the global energy from waste market.
Then representatives from Andusia and Eunomia will explore opportunities in the RDF export market over the next 5 years; followed by a session on EfW and its important role in supporting the circular economy; and panel discussions on project finance models and project contract structure.
Delegates will also have a choice of seminar streams covering subjects including Myth Busting: what is the secret of getting the Environmental Permit, business plan best practice for successful project delivery, developments in heat networks and gaining local authority planning permission.
Day Two – Operational aspects of successful EfW delivery
The second day kicks off with a talk by Technikgruppe Austria’s CEO Matthias Lukic on how data from EfW plants can be used to deliver enhanced performance.
Other sessions include: a discussion on Pollution control residues (APCr) and the ESA Protocol; a case study on the City of Birmingham’s waste strategy; expert opinion on new government policy and the NACEI (the Blue Book); a fire protection and prevention seminar; and a look at skills, training and diversity in the EfW industry.
The event concludes with a two-part technology module focused on the influence of waste fuel quality on energy output, and pre- and post-accreditation for qualifying renewable energy schemes.
Energy from Waste site visit
Delegates are also invited to attend an exclusive site visit to the London’s largest EFW plant. The site is operated by Cory Riverside at Belvedere on the banks of the river Thames. Delegates will have the opportunity to see technology in action and discover how Cory uses the river as a green highway to deliver the Capital’s waste to site.
