The Waste Incineration BREF is the basis to reassess and update the environmental permits of waste incineration plants in Europe. Within 4 years from the date of the publication, all the EU plants have to comply with the requirements set by the BREF.

One hour of conversation with three high-level speakers from EU institutions, industry and global consultancy to fully understand the importance of the WI BREF and its implications in Europe and worldwide.

Three presentations on the WI BREF process and the possible implications of the upcoming IED revision, on the challenges and opportunities the WI BREF has created from the operator’s perspective, and its impact on the market in Europe and abroad, will pave the way to a panel discussion and Q&A session with the audience.
