Visitors to the Energy from Waste conference will benefit from a packed programme designed to promote discussion and debate among an international audience of the sectors’ thought leaders and key decision makers.

Highlights include a keynote on what Brexit means for the European energy market, a panel review of key drivers in waste gasification, exclusive insight into opportunities in Eastern Europe, a case study on China and practical workshops on due diligence and refuse derived fuel.

Delegates will hear from a stellar line-up of renowned international speakers, including: Mike Brown, managing director, Eunomia who will present key findings from the latest Residual Waste Infrastructure Review in Europe; Ian Crummack, managing director, Cobalt Energy who will discuss how energy from waste can successfully fit into the UK’s power strategy post-Brexit, and Thomas Obermeier, founder & CEO, TOMM+C who will join the panel benchmarking UK energy from waste performance against other European countries.

‘Energy from Waste Tomorrow’ is also addressed in the thought-provoking agenda, with insight provided on local authorities’ future role in operational contracts, in addition to expert coverage on the secondary and tertiary technologies making energy from waste more viable and rising opportunities for energy from waste in smart cities.

Further, a site visit to the new Greatmoor Energy from Waste facility gives delegates the opportunity to see for themselves how Buckinghamshire deals with household and commercial waste in a sustainable way. A result of a partnership between FCC Environment and Buckinghamshire County Council, this facility will thermally treat up to 300,000 tonnes of residual waste per annum that otherwise would have been disposed of in landfill sites, and generate approximately 22 megawatts of electricity.

An exhibition of leading suppliers and service providers runs simultaneously alongside the two-day conference providing direct access for delegates to leading industrial technology and service specialists.

Delegates and exhibitors are also invited to attend the relaxed and informal drinks reception and networking dinner on the evening of 21 February.
