AGM & Presentation Information

Venue:      Zoom

Waste is one of the top-six climate change contributors in Australia due to fugitive emissions from landfilling. We can do more to recycle paper, cardboard, metals, glass, and plastic as well as compost food and green waste. Alas, there is a ceiling of around 30% to 40% residual waste which leading countries in Europe, as well as Japan, convert to clean energy in Energy from Waste (EfW) plants instead of landfilling. This energy/climate change double whammy is becoming a reality in the first two plants currently under construction in Perth. Dr Marc Stammbach is a leading waste expert and will explain the waste landscape and the benefits of EfW:

  • Australia’s EfW history
  • Entropy, zero waste, and best in class resource recovery including examples
  • EfW technology from combustion to heat recovery, energy conversion, flue gas and residue treatment
  • EfW regulations and emissions in the industrial context
  • Greenhouse gases from EfW
  • East Rockingham Energy from Waste project commencing operation in 2022
  • Drivers, barriers, and the potential for EfW in Australia

Marc Stammbach is a Chemical Engineer and holds a Doctorate in Science from ETHZ, Zurich, and a Business Degree from IMD, Lausanne, Switzerland. Marc has designed, marketed and built recycling and processing facilities for more than 30 years in environmental and large-scale investment industries in Australia and Europe. His resource recovery experience includes new projects totalling over 1.3 Million tons per year of residual waste-to-energy capacity. The most recent project is the 300,000 tpy East Rockingham WtE project commencing operation in mid-2022 – see . Today, he manages the local subsidiary of Hitachi Zosen Inova to deliver WtE solutions to the Oceania market.
