6th Energy from Waste and Biomass Workshop

Seminars 17 April 2019

6th Energy from Waste and Biomass Workshop



Historically, the UK either sent its waste to landfill or incinerated it to reduce its volume. In the late 1990s,the introduction of landfill diversion targets drove the development of new Energy from Waste (EfW) plants,producing electricity from the incinerated waste. Over 100 EfW plants are currently operating in the UK,fired by a varied array of fuels, which include anything from unpredictable mixtures of domestic municipal waste through to chicken litter and straw waste. In the main, these are independently operated and operational knowledge sharing limited. Similar challenges are faced by the increasing number of Biomass power plants, albeit the fuels are not as aggressive.

This joint Uniper Technologies & TWI workshop will focus on operator experiences.

Benefits of attending

  • Learn about the operational challenges faced by other companies and network with fellow professionals working directly in the operation of Energy from Waste and Biomass power plant
  • Participate in informal technical discussions with companies facing similar operational issues
  • Opportunity to steer future research and development to address the operational challenges faced by Waste to Energy and Biomass plant.
