The Brussels-based European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology (ESWET) organization is hosting an online event Monday, October 25, to discuss the role of waste-to-energy (WTE) technology in the future of handling difficult to recycle materials.
ESWET says the “Waste-to-Energy: The Beauty or the Beast?” program will bring together both “supporters and opponents of the technology at the same table.” Topics discussed by panelists will include: what will European waste management look like in the next 30 years?; can we avoid the generation of non-recyclable waste?; can WTE become carbon neutral thanks to the integration of carbon capture and storage (CCS)?.
ESWET says panelists include “experts from the waste management industry, consultancies and the NGOs most active on the topic.” The session takes place from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central European Time (8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time in the United States).
Organizations and companies represented by speakers and panelists include ESWET itself; the Brussels-based European Federation of Waste Management and Environmental Services (FEAD); the Oslo-based Bellona Europa foundation; and Brussels-based NGO Zero Waste Europe.
