Waste Expo will focus on waste and recycling future
The future of waste management and resource recovery is high on the government agenda as Waste Expo Australia launches registrations for its 2019 conference and exhibition. The event will feature robust dialogue, product innovation and provide a setting for the industry to converge and revolutionise Australia’s waste management processes.
Hosting more than 120 brands and featuring over 100 speakers across three conference stages, this year’s Waste Expo Australia will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 23–24 October. The event offers free-to-attend conference content across the Waste and Wastewater Summits, covering seven streams attracting waste management and resource professionals from across Australia.
The Waste Summit will cover resource recovery, waste-to-energy (WtE), collections, landfill and transfer stations, construction and demolition waste as well as commercial and industrial waste.
Across the two-day event, attendees will have access to industry speakers and suppliers across waste management, wastewater treatment, energy generation, energy efficiency and cleaning and hygiene.
Key speakers include Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio MP; EPA Victoria CEO Dr Cathy Wilkinson; and Dr Kar Mel Tang, Acting Executive Director for Waste Strategy and Policy at NSW EPA. Other national and state-based bodies will be represented along with case study presentations from local governments.
To kick off Day One of the Waste Summit, a panel discussion will address the pressing issues surrounding Australia’s WtE sector. Enhar Consulting Director Demian Natakhan will discuss the status of landfill solar generation and propose that the final resting place for municipal waste may be the beginning of new energy generation. Confronting the challenges and opportunities in wastewater treatment will also be tackled at the Wastewater Summit presented by EnviroConcepts.
Waste Expo Australia is co-located with All-Energy Australia, Energy Efficiency Expo and ISSA Cleaning and Hygiene Expo, showcasing the waste, recycling, wastewater, renewable energy, energy efficiency and cleaning industries.
Registration provides access to all four events on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 October 2019 from 9 am to 5 pm each day. To register, visit www.wasteexpoaustralia.com.au.
