25 October 2021, “Waste-to-Energy: The Beauty or The Beast?”

An online event to discuss the links between non-recyclable waste and Waste-to-Energy gathering at the same table supporters and opponents of the technology.


How will European waste management look like in the next thirty years? Can we avoid the generation of non-recyclable waste? Can Waste-to-Energy become carbon neutral thanks to the integration of CCS? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by experts covering the waste management industry as well as the consultancies and the NGOs most active on the topic.

Starting from the EU Green Deal pillars – Circular Economy, Zero Pollution, and Climate Neutrality – the event aims to debate how to improve the sustainability of waste treatment in the EU and discuss the role of Waste-to-Energy.

With speakers from CEWEP, Climate Principles, ESWET, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), Fortum Oslo Varme, Keppel Seghers, Zero Waste Europe, and others to be announced.

Moderated by Kira Taylor, Energy and Environment journalist at EURACTIV.
