WMR_Nov20

The AORA 2021 Annual Conference will focus on the Association’s mandate to develop pathways that promote sustainable growth of primary industry, the organics recycling market, and communities, through a healthy circular economy.

  • Pathways to a common vision
    As the peak body of organics recycling in Australia, AORA must weave together the ideas and ambitions of a diverse group into a coherent vision for the future. This year’s conference will dedicate time to collaboration, growing the community, including more voices in the discussion, and crystalising the vision and strategy for organics recycling over the next five years.
  • Pathways to an engaged community
    For organics recycling to reach its potential, it is essential that we better engage with residents and businesses to encourage good recycling practices and a dedication to the circular economy. We wish to hear from pioneers who have found effective means of engaging citizens and government to grow the pool of influencers striving for a cleaner, greener society.
  • Pathways to an informed opinion
    Information is the best weapon in the fight to establish a healthier, more sustainable economy. Delegates will hear from some of the world’s leading academics studying the beneficial reuse of recycled organics. They’ll also celebrate the achievements of Australia’s up and coming scientists, learning about the research conducted by the winners of the annual AORA Student Research Awards.

Over the last 12 months, Australia’s approach to managing secondary resources has undergone a significant shift. Export bans, the COVID pandemic and more, mean that more than ever before, Government, industry and the community must work collaboratively to manage these resources, maximising their value and protecting our environment for future generations.  

As a result, the Waste Recycling Industry Association Queensland (WRIQ), Queensland Farmers’ Federation (QFF), and the Australian Industrial Ecology Network (AIEN) are excited to present the Future Waste Resources 2021 Convention from 1 – 3 March 2021.

Focusing on the overarching theme of Optimism and Collaboration for Resource Recovery in Queensland, this unique event brings together the resource recovery industry, manufacturing and primary producers and will include specialist presenters and suppliers outlining real challenges, successes, and case studies, as well as tools, ideas and strategies for the future.

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.

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.

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

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.
