This course takes place on July 24 – 25, 2014 in London, UK. It provides a comprehensive analysis of conversion technologies for municipal solid waste and the market growth opportunities for selling MSW energy products. The focuses on the sources and limitations of feedstocks available for waste to energy projects. It also gives the necessary background to compare and evaluate the conversion technologies available to create energy or energy carriers from waste. It will demystify the many terminologies and technologies used to describe the complex map of conversion pathways. Finally it will address the policy and investment drivers behind MSW to energy projects as well as describe the current market and future market opportunities, including key economic challenges and risks.
The waste to energy industry is set to reach $26 billion by 2016 and growing worldwide at a rapid rate. And driven by a growing policy and practical requirement to close or reduce waste to landfill sites.
This imperative to reduce or remove municipal waste is driving and enabled in particular by the development of new advanced thermal technologies. This goes beyond traditional, volume-reducing “incineration” and instead allow the production of useful end-use energy or energy carriers.
Level & Style
The course presents a variety of technological and other principles and terminology, but all are explained in a clear, business-friendly manner, making no assumption of prior technical knowledge.
Thus it is specifically suited to senior business people, both newcomers to the waste-to-energy business or to those in commercially-focused roles within the industry who need a clear understanding of how complex technologies can impact overall business success.
It is not designed as “hands-on” training for field engineers or installers. Content is delivered throughout in an informal, interactive manner, encouraging questions and discussion and attendees, and using a variety of presentation media.
