Circular energy: how waste contributes to clean cities and mobility

Dinner debate in Strasbourg

Chaired by Jerzy Buzek – MEP & President of the EEF
Paul De Bruycker – President of CEWEP & CEO of Indaver-group
Lorena Iglesias – Hydrogen Product Manager of Tractebel
Bart Biebuyck – Executive Director of the FCH-JU (Fuel cells and hydrogen joint undertaking)

EU’s transition to climate neutral economy will require a successful decarbonisation of economic sectors like transport and industry that are traditionally hard to decarbonise.

Waste-to-Energy, which produces energy from non-recyclable waste in a sustainable manner, has a contribution to make in the process. Did you know that it successfully contributes to steam networks for industry and, more recently, to the production of green hydrogen for transport?

Our speakers explained Waste-to-Energy’s contribution to future environment, energy and climate policies. They gave examples of existing decarbonisation projects and elaborated on green hydrogen’s potential for future decarbonisation of mobility.
