Energy from Waste: Opportunities for Qld

Date: 21 Nov 19

Location: Hilton Brisbane

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.

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.

Australian Waste to Energy Forum 2018

In February 2018, the Australian Industrial Ecology Network will host its third annual Forum on Waste to Energy (WtE) in Ballarat, Victoria. The Directors of the AIEN and the organising committee warmly invite you to participate take part in the discussions, networking opportunities and social functions that have made previous events so successful.

In 2016, the first Forum took a general view of the technologies associated with extracting energy from waste and some of the issues confronting government authorities at all levels, as they contend with current trends in managing municipal solid waste.

The second Forum concentrated on matters relating to the business of converting waste into energy. The overarching theme then was the future of WtE in Australia. Issues canvassed included the availability of suitable feedstock, process economics, markets for the energy generated and accessing those markets. It was a particularly thought-provoking, useful and enjoyable event.

In 2018, the Forum will again focus on a critical element of the waste to energy industry; Building the case…Two endings to this phrase encapsulate the theme: …the case for WtE as a strategy and… the case for a WtE project. Two quite different scenarios but each drawing insights from previous Fora and each providing opportunities for delving into the issues that are so often critical for success.

In previous years, the Forum has been a two-day event. However, in 2018 the Forum will extend to two and a half days, owing to the interest expressed by past attendees in having more time during sessions for discussion. The programme will again include an entire session devoted to a genuine, two-way conversation between members of the audience and a panel of invited representatives from various government and private sector organisations.

In strategic terms, WtE is being discussed more and more in Australia, especially when authorities are required to decide on options or proposals. Making the case for a project touches on all aspects of successful implementation including planning, technology selection, financing, construction and operation. In both scenarios, effective stakeholder engagement – especially with the community – is now understood to be absolutely essential. The question is: how does this all happen in practice?
