venice2020

The production of energy from alternative sources and its impact on climate change are among the main strategic tools implicated in the sustainable development of our society. Numerous types of biomass and wastes contribute towards the production of energy and reduction in the use of fossil fuels by means of biological, chemical and thermal processes. Existing biomass and waste to energy technologies are currently undergoing rapid development. Despite growing interest in the use of these technologies, in many countries their implementation remains limited.

The aim of the Venice 2020 is to focus on the advances made in the application of technologies for energy recovery from biomass and waste and to encourage discussion in these fields. The previous edition of the Symposium, held in 2018, was attended by over 400 scientists and operators from approximately 43 different countries.

The eighth edition of the Symposium will feature:

  • Three days of scientific presentations
  • One day of guided technical tours at biochemical and thermochemical plants
  • Oral sessions, a poster session and an exhibition by companies working in the field
  • Expected attendance of over 500 delegates from tens of different countries worldwide

The Symposium is organised by the International Waste Working Group (IWWG) with the scientific support of the Universities of Padova, Trento, Hokkaido, Rostock, Tsinghua, Queensland and Hamburg University of Technology.

Conference

iswa2020

The ISWA World Congress is the most prestigious international congress for the waste management sector, and Rotterdam is proud to host and organise the congress in 2020, in partnership with the NVRD. In 2020, the congress will focus on a wide range of issues such as separate collection and recycling, waste treatment, marine litter and the circular economy. These issues align with Rotterdam’s ambition to lead the pack when it comes to the circular economy. By 2050, waste will no longer exist in our city.

The ISWA World Congress is a global meeting which includes high level plenaries as well as technical site visits and a cultural and social programme where waste management profes- sionals, government officials, industry leaders, policy makers, scientists and young professionals meet to exchange views and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for sustainable solid waste management.

AIEN Event | Workshop

AIEN_Forum

The Queensland State Government’s commitment to a waste strategy that includes an Energy from Waste Policy, along with recently introduced waste levy is expected to accelerate a number of opportunities in the state. Opportunities that include the development of Refuse derived fuels and the recovery of energy from wastes that cannot be reused or recycled and require technology to divert said waste from landfill.

WRIQ and AIEN are jointly hosting this one-day seminar to provide industry stakeholders with the latest government, technical, finance and business information as it relates to developing energy from waste projects.

Addressing the Plastic Recycling Crisis

Date: 09 May 19

Location: Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne

AIEN Event | Workshop

AIEN_Forum

Much has occurred since January 2018 in the area of plastics recycling. The China Sword recycling/ recyclables challenges, recycling facility overload and temporary recycling facility closures have all received much coverage in recent times.

Sadly, messages regarding the genuine existing plastic waste recycling opportunities for generators, waste managers, Councils, etc, continue to struggle for exposure, being embedded among other, more negative, messaging.

This one day forum will present a number of Australian based successes and opportunities that are already available to industry.

AIEN Event | Conference

AIEC_Icon

The theme for the conference – Connecting manufacturers, recyclers and consumers – aims to create a dialogue amongst all stakeholders in the materials supply chain, showcase and promote industrial ecology projects and inspire further innovation in Australia.

This conference series promotes the practice of industrial ecology (IE) in Australia. Each event provides a stimulating forum in which ideas and opportunities can be presented and discussed. Conference presentations are focused on practical outcomes and solutions for managing wastes. On this occasion, the focus will be upon packaging materials. Creation of local markets for recovered packaging materials is critical given recent policy changes which is now preventing the export of recovered packaging materials for further processing and recycling in China.

Recognised experts both domestically and internationally, in the fields of packaging, marketing, manufacturing, resource recycling and reuse will be key speakers at the conference. The 2018 event will continue to provide those wanting to get a clearer picture of the issues a unique opportunity to tour large facilities that are profitably recovering and reusing materials.
