EfW under the spotlight at circular economy debate

The role of energy-from-waste (EfW) in an emerging circular economy will be debated at a special Resource Revolution session held at Sustainability Live next week.

An expert panel will discuss how EfW technologies might evolve given the rapidly changing resource efficiency landscape, as much of the aspiration of circular economy thinking is to move waste up the hierarchy to the point where it is effectively designed out.

There is evidence that some resource management professionals are now discriminating against EfW and the risks of this will be discussed during the debate.

The speaker line-up features Resource Revolution sponsor FCC Environment’s international treatment director Dennis Thran, NNFCC chief executive Dr Jeremy Tomkinson, TicketyBoo director Mark Shayler and Vertical Thinking managing director Mark Bradbury. The debate will be chaired by edie’s own waste editor, Maxine Perella.

The session takes place during the Sustainability Live exhibition held at Birmingham NEC, 16 – 18 April on 17 April, 3.30pm – 4.15pm at Energy-from-Waste Theatre 1 within the EfW Expo zone.
