World Waste to Energy Series

Launched in London in the Spring of 2012, the World Waste to Energy and Resources Summit series has established itself as a meeting place for international stakeholders focused on accelerating the commercialisation of advanced conversion technologies for municipal and industrial waste. Each year, leading project developers from both the UK and overseas come together to share their experience and best practice in developing gasification and pyrolysis projects. They are joined by the financial community, with extensive discussion on how to overcome the challenges in financing merchant ACT facilities. The summit also showcases the latest project opportunities from around the world and has established itself as a launch-pad for new international partnerships and alliances.
