Focus on EfW at this year's RWM exhibition

Recovering energy from municipal waste will be the focus of a dedicated area and seminar theatre at this year’s RWM in partnership with CIWM exhibition.

Energy from waste (EfW) has become increasingly popular with local authorities looking to cut their energy costs while minimising waste and carbon emissions as part of a drive to achieve a zero-waste economy.

The new area at the waste and recycling industry’s flagship event will showcase the latest in EfW treatments, including biological technologies such as anaerobic digestion and thermal technologies including gasification, pyrolysis and combined heat and power technologies.

The show takes place at Birmingham’s NEC from 13-15 September, and the new Sorbacal EfW Zone in Hall 20 will feature many of the technology and service providers at the cutting edge of producing EfW.

CIWM chief executive Steve Lee said: “EfW has become a headline issue in recent years as the UK strives to minimise the waste we send to landfill and as the cost of energy from traditional fuels continues to rise.

“The Sorbacol EfW Zone is a unique opportunity for visitors to improve their knowledge and be inspired by the latest developments in this strategically important area.”

Formed last year from the merger of the Recycling and Waste Management exhibition and Futuresource shows, the exhibition is the UK’s biggest event for organisations from all sectors with an interest in waste and recycling. It will feature more than 600 exhibitors and has the industry’s largest programme of free seminar content, with more than 90 speakers in 72 seminar sessions.
