AIE Sunshine Coast | Energy from Waste for the Circular Economy

Venue: Alex Surf Supporters Club

Date: Thu 15 Aug 2019 @ 5:30pm to 7:30pm


With energy costs soaring and Queensland’s waste disposal levy now in place, find out how EfW can be part of the sustainability solution

Energy from Waste (EfW) is an area of significant growth for the energy and waste industries in Australia. An essential part of developing a circular economy, it is estimated that 15% of the waste going to landfill today could be used to produce energy instead. Established and emerging thermal, biological and chemical processes can be used to extract the hidden value from the material that we have been discarding, while simultaneously reducing the burden on our waste disposal system.

Joyanne Manning from Arup will provide an overview of the current state of play of EfW globally and nationally. Joyanne and Arup undertake significant work in this space both in Australia and internationally.

The presentation will feature an overview of:

  • Australia’s EfW projects
  • Emerging trends
  • Government policy and key stakeholders
  • Technology options
  • Considerations and international learnings
