The growth in EfW plant capacity is leading to a corresponding increase in the generation of Air Pollution Control residues (APCr), making it one of the fastest growing hazardous waste streams in the EU.

Fact: For every 100,000 tpa of MSW that is converted to energy using thermal treatment processes, approx. 4,000 tpa of hazardous APCr is produced. APCr is a hazardous waste, generated in the exhaust gas cleaning systems of energy from waste plants and is a growing concern of the public and other pressure groups.

This webinar, in association with Tetronics International and Green Energy Parks, looks at how tightening environmental legislation will force a higher diversion of APCr away from landfill, creating an opportunity for sustainable technologies to supersede the management of this growing hazardous waste stream - technologies that countries such as Japan have been using for decades.

You will learn about:
1.The challenges related with APCr management and its impact on EfW facilities
2.The benefits of Plasma technology in treating APCr

Case Study: Plasma Technology
The webinar offers an opportunity to look in depth at one treatment technology currently causing a stir, which uses plasma arc technology to destroy the hazardous species of APCr whilst producing products that can be sold as an additional source of revenue. The webinar also looks at how and why this technology was selected by Green Energy Parks to manage the APCr that will be generated at EnergyPark Peterborough, which is due to start construction this year.

Tetronics International is the global leader in the supply of Plasma Arc resource recovery plants for hazardous waste treatment and metal recovery applications. This includes the delivery of superior benefits when treating the hazardous APCr generated from energy from waste plants.

Who should attend?
1.Those active in EfW plants and their development in the EU
2.Senior Individuals involved energy from waste facilities, combined heat and power (CHP) plants, sheet glass production, paper recycling and bio-energy plants, waste management and environmental aspects of government
