How will European waste management look like in the next thirty years? Can we avoid the generation of non-recyclable waste? Can Waste-to-Energy become carbon neutral thanks to the integration of CCS? These are some of the questions that have been addressed by experts covering the waste management industry as well as the consultancies and the NGOs most active on the topic.
Starting from the EU Green Deal pillars – Circular Economy, Zero Pollution, and Climate Neutrality – the event aimed to debate how to improve the sustainability of waste treatment in the EU and discuss the role of Waste-to-Energy.
With speakers from Bellona Europa, CEWEP, Climate Principles, ESWET, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), FEAD, Fortum Oslo Varme, Zero Waste Europe, and the moderation of Kira Taylor, Energy and Environment journalist at EURACTIV.
The event is part of “The Beauty in the Beast” campaign: a journey through five different stories to reveal the hidden beauties of Waste-to-Energy technologies and their impact on the EU Green Deal.
