ICE Energy From Waste Conference

Here’s a guest post on an upcoming conference in the UK that looks quite interesting. Have a look and see if you’d like to attend:

The UK doesn’t currently have sufficient capacity to process all waste that could be utilised for energy — an estimated 30 million tonnes go unexploited every year and more is exported to Europe. At a time when government is trying to cut carbon emissions and shore up energy supply, it’s increasingly crucial that the potential of extracting energy from waste be realised.

The UK Government, major corporations, and international representatives of Energy from Waste (EfW) will be coming together on March 21 in central London to address the barriers to success that plague the industry — planning, community opposition, funding, land capacity, and more. Focused on case studies and key lessons learnt, the senior level discussion is a vital coming together for industry to learn from others, define solutions, enact real change, and maximise the potential of EfW.

The Institution of Civil Engineers is perfectly placed to organise such a forum, drawing on unrivalled access to industry experts and government. Speakers from Defra, the Green Investment Bank, Duchy of Cornwall, British Airways, and Severn Trent are just some of the experts who will be attending the third annual ICE EfW conference.

Peter Jones OBE, former Director of Biffa Waste Services Ltd, author of and Chair of the past two ICE events, commented that the series “impressed me as an important meeting for the whole industry, it offers unparalleled networking and one of the most informative programmes on the market.”

  • Is this Efw different than incineration? Is it truly clean, renewable energy or is it simply piggy-backing on our non-sustainable lifestyle of throwing everything away and getting new?

    I have to admit I actually do not know – education please? (Or even an article?)
