The adoption by the European Commission of the Circular Economy Package last December includes the revision of legislative proposals to reduce waste. In 2016 the European Commission will deliver a communication paper that exploits the potential of Waste-to-Energy by establishing synergies between resource efficiency, energy efficiency, circular economy and climate change. In the light of this, EEF’s Associate Member CEWEP is organising a congress on waste-to-energy on 16 and 17 June in Rotterdam.
The congress will serve as an exceptional opportunity to hear all the news about Waste-to-Energy techniques and developments and have timely discussions with representatives of the EU Institutions, decision makers, the industry and NGOs on the latest policy developments.
Participants will also see how the heat from Rotterdam’s Waste-to-Energy plant contributes to the city’s ambitious green initiatives – a good practice example of how Waste-to-Energy is part of the transition to the circular economy and green energy society.
CEWEP is the umbrella association of the owners and operators of Waste-to-Energy plants across Europe. CEWEP’s members are committed to ensuring high environmental standards, achieving low emissions and maintaining state of the art energy production from remaining waste that cannot be recycled in a sustainable way.
