Waste Expo Australia announces conference agenda
The upcoming Waste Expo Australia has announced its conference schedule.
The event, which will take place alongside All-Energy Australia from 26 to 27 October, is free for industry members and is hosted in the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. It will provide insights into waste management and recycling, and there will be product showcases and demonstrations, and networking opportunities.
Speakers at the conference will include legislators, local council members and recycling and waste management experts.
The circular economy will be of particular focus of the event this year, in addition to topics like municipal waste initiatives for waste and recycling, and commercial and industrial (C&I) and commercial and demolition (C&D) resource recovery and waste management. Updates will also be provided regarding energy-from-waste innovation.
Lily D’Ambrosio, the Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, will lead the first day of the conference speaking about how Victoria is approaching recycling and waste management.
Other speakers include Matt Genever, the interim CEO of Sustainability Victoria; Tony Circelli, the head of Recycling Victoria; and Veronique Bensadou, Senior Environmental Consultant at the MRA Consulting Group.
Robby Clark, Portfolio Director for the Energy & Waste Portfolio at RX Global, said: “We are proud to deliver the most comprehensive Waste Expo agenda to date in 2022. With a stellar line-up of speakers from all across recycling and waste management, all coming together to share their successes, lessons learnt and what the future holds.
“Waste Expo gives attendees the opportunity to hear from some of the biggest names in the industry at the conference and do business with leading suppliers for free on the expo floor.”
