Energy-from-Waste conference in Melbourne


The Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) is hosting the 2022 Energy-from-Waste Conference in Melbourne from 16-17 March.

Spanning myriad thermal and non-thermal technologies, from anaerobic digestion to gasification to processed engineered fuel, Energy-from-Waste (EfW), also known as Waste-to-Energy (WtE),  can play a significant role in an integrated waste management and resource recovery system by harnessing energy from residual material, as proven in Europe, Asia, and the US. It is also a key piece in the emissions puzzle, driving aspirations for a net zero future to reality.

The theme for the conference (postponed to March 2022) is “The role of EfW in delivering a net zero future” and aims to bring industry experts to the table to uncover pathways that will lead Australia to a low-carbon future.

It will also focus on the regulatory landscape, planning and development, stakeholder engagement, and technology and innovation – the factors that are all the more pertinent as proponents move forward in their EfW journey and more projects start to come online across Australia.

The conference will include an Australian EfW regulatory review – who’s getting it right and what could be improved, by Jennifer Hughes, of Beatty Hughes & Associates.

Lucas McVey, of Great Southern Waste Technologies will speak about the GSWT Dandenong South gasification project – negotiating the naysayer as well as De-risking EfW facility waste streams by Jared Roberts, Enviropacific.
