Developments in the Waste Strategy have been long awaited and much debated. At best they could unlock some of the barriers to both waste and energy infrastructure development - at worst they could result in recourse to more debate, and a loss of vital inward investment.

While the financial climate remains difficult, it's no surprise that many of those local authorities who are still to put residual waste solutions in place have had to take a step back to reconsider their options. But the UK cannot afford a protracted period of reconsideration if we are to deliver the required waste and energy capacity to meet targets and actual need. While last year's announcements proved to be a damp squib, early indicators suggest that these new changes will have a positive impact.

Government energy policy has already identified EfW as one of a handful of technologies that are critical to delivering energy security and low carbon objectives. It is our belief, however, that if we are to deliver the full potential of EfW, we are going to need to exploit resources beyond the municipal sector, especially the energy value of residual Commercial & Industrial (C&I) waste.

Joining up the dots of all of these combined waste and energy considerations, and taking into account planning and localism, is an enormous challenge - for government and for those working within the sector.

Covanta is the largest Energy-from-Waste provider in the world, operating 46 plants worldwide. The company has more than 25 years' experience and treats over 18 million tonnes or residual waste annually from which it derives more than 9 million megawatt hours of sustainable energy.

Covanta is making a considerable investment into the UK and Irish Energy-from-Waste markets, making up to 2 million tonnes of EfW capacity available over the next five years. Through this programme Covanta will be investing in communities, through job creation and community partnerships.

  • Optimización del área de espuma en la celda de flotación Optimización del área de espuma en la celda de flotación Rodrigo Grau, Senior Manager Beneficiation process, Outotec Recorded: May 13 2016 59 mins
    El tema a presentar será ‘Concentración de la cama de espuma y diseño de launders (canaletas)’, así como su influencia en el rendimiento de las celdas de flotación.

    Frecuentemente, las compañías ignoran la importancia de una correcta concentración de la cama de espuma y el diseño de los launders; sin embargo, ambos aspectos adquieren un rol de crucial importancia para el correcto rendimiento metalúrgico de las celdas de flotación, y en consecuencia el de la planta en su totalidad. Las celdas de flotación de distintas funciones dentro de la planta requieren distintas configuraciones del cono de espuma y las canaletas de concentrado para su operación óptima. Outotec explorará las distintas opciones con los participantes y demostrará cómo identificar la mejor configuración para una planta. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
  • Optimizing froth area of the flotation cell Optimizing froth area of the flotation cell Jason Heath, Technology Leader Flotation, Outotec Recorded: Apr 29 2016 50 mins
    The topic in focus will be ‘flotation cell froth crowding and launder design,’ and its’ influence on overall performance of a flotation cell. Companies often overlook the importance of crowding and launder design; however, both play a critical role in good metallurgical performance of an individual cell, and therefore the overall performance of the plant. Flotation cells with different duties and in different positions will require different cone and launder configurations; Outotec will explore these options with participants and demonstrate how to identify the correct arrangement in a plant. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
  • Identificación y eliminación de cuellos de botella en plantas de flotación Identificación y eliminación de cuellos de botella en plantas de flotación Hernan Elgueta, Sales Engineer Senior, Outotec Recorded: Apr 15 2016 44 mins
    El tema a presentar será ‘Cómo identificar mejorías en plantas de flotación’, el cual es un tema de énfasis que Outotec pone en práctica alrededor del mundo.

    En algunos casos, los diseños de ingeniería y configuraciones de proceso originales pueden disminuir el rendimiento de los procesos en la actualidad; esto debido a cambios en el cuerpo del mineral y cambios a la estrategia operativa del proceso. Estos aspectos serán discutidos con la audiencia, a la vez que se expondrán las áreas clave para obtener mejorías. Para esto se examinará el rol de los componentes clave en los equipos de flotación y los participantes obtendrán una mayor comprensión sobre la influencia que cada uno de estos componentes tiene en el rendimiento en general. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
  • Finding and eliminating bottlenecks in flotation plants Finding and eliminating bottlenecks in flotation plants Robert Coleman, Account Director, Outotec Recorded: Apr 8 2016 58 mins
    The topic in focus will be ‘where to identify improvement areas within existing flotation plants,’ something which Outotec is putting into practice worldwide. Original engineering and plant layouts may actually be lowering current performance levels due to changes in the mineral and variations in operating philosophy; these will be discussed with the audience and key areas for potential improvements will be outlined. The role of each of the major components of the flotation machine will be looked at and participants will gain a greater understanding of the influence that each part has on overall performance. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.

  • Holistic solutions for mine tailings and water Holistic solutions for mine tailings and water Jason Palmer, Commercial Product Manager, Dewatering Recorded: Dec 22 2015 34 mins
    Almost all mines have waste streams from overburden through tailings to excess water and as the mine life develops these streams require storage or treatment. While some may have acid generation potential or heavy metals contamination much of the waste is inert and can be safely stored in stacks or dams that are stabilized and revegetated at the end of the mine life.

    Advances in technology are enabling changes to the way dams are managed, increasing the solid content of the tailings stream decreases the size of the storage, increases the water recovery, reducing risk and enabling simpler closure. Advances in filtration have made the stacking of tailings an alternative in arid regions or areas where a tailings dam may not be acceptable.

    The technical feasible solution with the lowest life of mine cost is typically influenced by the source material availability, geographic conditions, production rate and local legislations. Analyzing the available technologies to arrive at the best holistic solution requires a deep understanding of the available technologies combining process, geotechnical and strategic planning.

    This webinar introduces the technologies and services that Outotec has developed to respond to the evolving industry needs for safe and effective management of tailings and mine water.

  • Opportunities for US Companies in the European Smart Grid Market Opportunities for US Companies in the European Smart Grid Market Malavika Tohani, Frost & Sullivan; Shannon Fraser, U.S. Commercial Service, Paddy Young, European Utility Week Recorded: Sep 3 2015 55 mins
    Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

    For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

    This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.
