Maximising the potential for waste as an energy resource
This webinar will look at how advanced waste-to-energy technologies present an exceptional opportunity to use waste as a resource, as well as providing an alternative risk free energy source for addressing:
- The EU's Renewable Energy Directive - the requirement for the UK to source 15% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020 - currently targets are not being met
- The current government commitment to a zero waste economy and the emphasis that it's given for the need to treat waste as a resource
- The European Commission's call for higher priority to be given to reuse and recycling to ensure that, by 2020, all waste is managed as a resource that can then be fed back into the economy.
Possibilities for waste-to-energy technologies such as Gasplasma are enormous in meeting the government's zero waste and renewable energy targets.
The webinar will be presented by Rolf Stein, Chief Executive Officer, Advanced Plasma Power and Maxine Perella, editor of edieWaste.
