Energy from Waste - What about the Leftovers?
16th March 2010
The North West is fast becoming a hub for energy from waste activities in the UK with many large scale facilities planned and in construction phases. To assist in the sustainable management of waste byproducts of the EfW process, Envirolink Northwest are holding a full day event entitled "Energy from Waste, What about the leftovers?" at the Manchester Conference Centre on the 16th March 2010.
Over the coming years it is estimated that the region could have the capacity to thermally treat 4 million plus tonnes of waste per year. This generates the question, 'what about the leftovers?'
Bottom ash, fly ash, recyclates and excess heat are all by-products of the EfW process. Rather than ending life in a landfill as a waste product, these residual materials can provide an opportunity for recycling and re-use. The aim of this event is to provide a background to the current status of EfW and EfW projects in the North West and demonstrate opportunities to maximise resource recovery at EfW facilities.
The event is free to attend and will provide an opportunity to network with a range of experts, in what is a rapidly expanding field. Attached is the flyer with the agenda and information on how to book a place.
