Conference - Energy and Materials from Waste

2017 the "Energy and Materials from Waste" conference is held for the 4th time. Use the event to discuss the innovations of BREF WI, innovative technologies and markets, current developments in the Waste-to-Energy sector and the concept of "Circular Economy" with other experts.

Understanding and exploiting waste as a resource

Due to new technologies and innovations, waste continues to evolve from troublesome garbage to a valuable commodity. In addition, the landfilling of waste without treatment is now only allowed in a few exceptional cases. Other options of waste disposal are therefore becoming a major topic.

The "Energy and Materials from Waste" conference provides you with information about innovations and trends as well as the current legal position on waste disposal. Among other, find out more about:

  • The thermal exploitation of waste
  • Waste-to-Energy in the context of European legislation
  • International projects and markets in the Waste-to-Energy sector
  • Energy generation from waste
  • New trends in recycling and the utilisation of bottom ash from waste incineration
  • Innovative technologies for the reduction of emissions
  • Urban mining

The conference is the only Waste-to-Energy event which considers recycling as a complementary path for the treatment of waste.

As a special highlight, you can also look forward to a keynote on the Waste-to-Energy plant with the world's largest incineration capacity.

The event is supported by the Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants (CEWEP).
