CEWEP Phoenix Award

The classical myth of the Phoenix, the legendary magic bird that finds new life through fire, is emblematic of the process waste undergoes in a Waste-to-Energy plant.

The CEWEP Phoenix Award is a bronze sculpture which is presented to eminent individuals for their outstanding contribution to Waste-to-Energy.

The Phoenix Award was designed by Italian artist Maurizio Tazzuti http://tazzuti.tumblr.com/

In 2016 Prof. Nickolas John Themelis was presented with CEWEP Phoenix Award for his outstanding contributions to the Waste-to-Energy sector.

In 2014 CEWEP presented the Phoenix Award to Håkan Rylander, CEO of the SYSAV Waste-to-Energy plant, and Jan Manders, Dutch Waste Management Association, for their commitment and their tireless work explaining Waste-to-Energy’s contribution to society.
